Classic Fry Bread

Perfect for Thanksgiving, traditional fry bread is easily customizable for a quick savory snack.

Topped with cranberry sauce or dipped into your favorite holiday soup, this fry bread is the perfect addition to your Thanksgiving table.

Serves 4 to 6

What You Need:
2 cups flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt            
1 cup warm water         
Vegetable oil

What You Do:

  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir in water well to form a soft (but not sticky) dough.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat a thin layer of oil. On a work surface, divide dough into 6 to 8 pieces and then flatten to form patties.
  3. In hot skillet, carefully add flattened dough pieces, in batches if necessary. Fry bread 3 to 5 minutes until golden brown, then flip and repeat. Drain on paper towels, and serve warm.
