This week for dinner I made turkey/veggie soup and fried bread. I LOVE fried bread. My mom made it occasionally when I was little. Her mom made it for her and my great-grandma made it for my nana when she was little. It is so easy and oh so good!
First, make some bread dough. Any recipe will work. Let it rise.
Then, tear off a piece about the size of a ping pong ball and flatten it with your hands, like this:
Drop it carefully into a frying pan filled with about 1/2 inch of oil. Brown on one side (about a minute), then flip over (carefully!) and brown the other side.
Place on paper towels to absorb the excess oil and sprinkle with salt immediately. One batch of bread dough makes about a dozen pieces of fried bread.
