Ingredients

  • 1 pkg. dry yeast
  • 3 cups warm water
  • 1/2 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 6 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons veg. oil
  • 2 tablespoons veg. oil

Directions

Disolve yeast in warm water then add salt and sugar. Let stand for 5 minutes covered with a towel. Add flour and oil to liquid mixture. Mix and put on floured bread board and knead until mixture is smooth. Put dough in a greased bowl, cover with towel and let rise for 1-1/2 hours. Remove from bowl and put on bread board, knead until air is pushed out. Make dough into 2 balls, rolling each into circles or rectangles about 1/2 inch thick. Cut into 2 inch squares or any shape, cut slit in middle and drop into hot cooking oil. (works best with iron skillet). Fry several pieces at a time browning to a golden brown on each side, drain on paper towel and either sprinkle with powdered sugar or butter and honey. You may also use bread pieces for Indian Tacos, topping with a thick chile w/beans, chopped lettuce, chopped tomatoes, chopped onion, shredded cheese, salsa and sour cream. This makes the best Indian Tacos I\'ve tasted from the Canadian border to the Mexican border. Thanks Mom

Note: I gave this recipe the name ``Flathead Fry Bread`` for the simple reason that I am ``Flathead`` or ``Salish``.
