Navajo Fried Bread

This was a real treat for my kids. They were fascinated by the fact that it, "tastes just like bread!" The recipe is SUPER simple (which is a bonus for us adults), not too messy, and what kids don't enjoy rolling and shaping bread dough?

Let's start with the recipe.

  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 cups self rising flour (or 2 cups regular flour plus 1 tsp. baking soda)
  • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup water
  • Butter for frying


    • Mix together salt, flour, oil, and water. (Sunglasses are optional!)
    • Knead and shape into several small rounds of dough.
    • Press or use a rolling pin to form flat discs.
    • Fry in butter on medium heat until golden brown on both sides.

    • Serve with butter, honey, sour cream, jelly, cheese, or sprinkle with powdered sugar and enjoy!
