We serve frybread in place of dinner rolls at Thanksgiving Dinner.

We also enjoy it as a dessert, topped with powdered sugar.

It's not pre-contact food, but it's delicious at powwows as an NDN Taco, topped with cheese, meat, beans, lettuce and tomatoes.

We usually make healthy choices, so we can enjoy frybread as a treat!

My Great-Grandma Margaret's Frybread Recipe

Ingredients

  • 6 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Plenty of Corn Oil to Fry It In
  • 2 tablespoon baking powder
  • 3 cups warm water

Directions

  • Stir your flour, baking powder, and salt together in a glass mixing bowl.
  • Then, add warm water and stir into dough.
  • Knead the dough on floured wax paper.
  • Flatten the dough into palm-size pieces.
  • Fry the dough in hot oil (about 350 degrees) for 3 minutes, until it is golden brown.

We never actually used a recipe for frybread, since she cooked by the “handful” method…”a handful of this” or “a handful of that”! So, I recreated her recipe for y'all to enjoy!

HappyNative Heritage Month!

        I found some really old recipes, frybread used to be made with nut flours, corn meal and cooked in single origin oils, nut, animal, sunflower (not highly processed and refined…oils, those aren’t healthy or “traditional”)
        I played around with the recipe…its mad filling, it wasn’t fluffy tho. I saw another recipe with berries added and mixed in with dried and shredded venison for travel, I imagine that was like elvish “lamas bread” lol…so filling!!
        It’s the early Dutch settlers that introduced us to donuts and this type of frybread, even then our grain flours then were about 17% protein with vitamins and minerals and was cooked in healthy oils. It’s sad what has been done to our food (they altered the wheat in 1938 for faster production) and what we are told is healthy…but I agree, this would be a treat,
        I personally would find a healthy flour and cook in a healthy oil and have fun with it!

    There is nothing like frybread! Oh my gosh! What a wonderful, tasty bread. I used to make it all the time. That was a while back. But, now, seeing this recipe, makes me want to start making it again. Got caught up in “life” and didn’t have time to make it. Now that it has been ‘shared’….wa~do, I will start making it again! My grandmother used to make it. No measuring….she just “knew”. If I did like her, I would probably mess it up. 🙂 Wa~do in sharing your recipe, Paul! 🙂

    The only frybread I see now is flat and has fruit or powdered sugar. The frybread my grandmother and other women from Wewoka, OK made frybread round balls close to the size of hush puppies. They tasted more like sour dough bread and drenched with a honey butter. We ate them hot and out of a paper bag so it would soak up some of the oil. I never learned how to make frybread like that. I wish the old folks were still around. I also miss the sofkee they prepared.

      I thought it was funny you make it for Thanksgiving! My mom always made it too on Thanksgiving for my father who is part Native. We had it for breakfast though. She started the turkey at 5:00 am (usually about a 25 pounder) then started cooking the frybread. That’s the smell we woke up to on Thanksgiving! After I had my own family I started cooking it for Thanksgiving breakfast too (and sometimes Christmas- can you really have too much frybread?!) my grandchildren love it too. They are at least 5 generation frybread eaters!

    Ken

    says:

    I am in general agreement with Mark June 14, 2015) comments. Fry bread is NOT a way for Native North Americans to celebrate their heritage. Native people are a conquered race and were forced and relocated from their original homelands and assembled on government lands known as reservations. Natives were no longer allowed to hunt or be self sufficient. They were given sparse and often poor rations of European white flour, sugar and lard to survive on. To this day, Native Americans have the highest incidences of diabetes than any other culture. This is directly related to everyday diet. The three “white” products are by no means part of the original North American Indian diet or traditional foodways. Native Americans are a corn culture. Unfortunately, modern agriculture changed the original much healthier north American maize into a corn that is now yielding higher sugar content. Yes enjoy your fry bread… in moderation.

    I prefer lndian (Red) or American Indian. That was the way we were called back in the day. Native is Eastern folks changing things to suit themselves as they emerged from their”underground railroad.” And we can easily distinguish ourselves between red and brown Indian.

      Please share with everyone who read your posting why I get the feeling that you have innate hostility for people of color…no matter their history. Especially the “back in the day” phrase seems to suggest you experienced prejudice yet you demean folks who experienced the Underground Railroad travails. Please do disregard this question if you are of European blood…we red and brown folks know where you stand based on “back in the day.”

      I am Native American, but we also call ourselves Indigenous because we are indigenous to this land and country.

Montauk First Nations Indigenous sounds a lot better than Indians. I love who we all are and our culture in general, just like I do all cultures who love, care and respect us as we do them also.

    says:

    I’m all about Native Americans claiming fry bread. I’m only 1/16th myself, and have never had tires to that heritage from my family, but I still know the true history and meaning of this dish. It arose on the concentration camps where natives of the southwest were held by the US government if they managed to first survive the Long Walk. Those survivors were given meager supplies to live on, often already rancid. Fry bread can be used to help connect the people of today with the suffering of their ancestors, but to call it a celebration of heritage without mentioning that heritage, indeed implying a radically different heritage with the comment about thanksgiving… well I’d call it irresponsible, to say the least.

Our ancestors did not eat gluten. Sorry to be a downer, I liked the fry bread as well. It can be made gluten free with other protien-rich flours though. Also the wheat crop is killed with harmful pesticides now just prior to harvest. Just thought I’d pass that along for the benefit of keeping us healthy. Love to All my relations

      Fry bread for real is not sopapillas. I make fry bread every day as others make biscuits. I am proud to know how to hand make our foods that keep our people alive. I am careful because I also have diabetes. I am Wa zha zhe Zhin ga (little
      Osage) on my Fathers side, and Choctaw-Cherokee-Seminole on my Mother’s side. I am Indigenous. All people born in America are Native American no matter what race. But, we have been known as Indian for a long time. We are still here! So no matter what you like to say you are. You are, follow your heart.

      This isn’t my bread recipe and I’m Winnebago too. I use flour, salt, sugar and rapid rise yeast. I don’t know the baking powder bread recipe tho. I don’t have measurements, just “watch me” recipe LOL. I hope u learn some day – it’s easy and delicious!!

    This recipe uses a little less baking powder and salt than mine. Mine is basically 1 tbsp. per two cups of flour. I also know some Natives that just use self-rising flour and warm water. For some reason I think it turns out better when you use all purpose…not sure why though. Oh and one more thing…I have used unbleached flour in my recipes. It is a little bit better for you and turns out just fine.

      Hi Donna
      My name is Laurie and I have been trying to find information in the tribe of Micmac as like you I am also part of that tribe as well as Iroquois. Could you please help me in finding the information on both these tribes? I have been able to find some on the latter but nothing on the first. I would greatly appreciate it if you could . Thank you and may you be blessed for all your efforts.
      Sincerely,
      Laurie Germain

    I just love fry bread my friend that was Navaho Sioux gave me one recipe for fry bread but yours is easier..I am 1/16th Cherokee but I cannot find out what tribe my ancestors were in cause no one told me what my great grandmothers last name was before she married.

      says:

      Hi Anna, with some investigative research into census records, you may just find out her name, which could lead you to finding her on the Dawes Rolls, in order to get registered with the tribe. If you need help, most Mormon churches usually have a Family History Center and volunteers to help you. See if there is one near you.

      I would like to throw out, you may have a hard time getting registered, most tribes require a minimum blood level of heritage.

        says:

        I would like to tell you that I am part Cherokee–very little as a matter of fact–however, if you can prove that your mother/father parents, or grandparents or whatever were listed on the Dawes roll, you can get papers stating your degree of blood, and your registration as part of the Cherokee nation. Good luck!

      says:

      I have the same issues. All of my grandmother’s Indian history was bought off and hidden even before my birth because my uncle believed that it was a shame. I knew her maiden name and her birthday, but not the year. I had heard that she was Choctaw and that’s all I know. Tried going through the BIA and that was a waste of time because I didn’t have documentation. I wish you well in your search. I gave it up finally about 10 years ago. On a happier note: I love fry bread and learned how to make it after I moved to Alaska in 1969. Good stuff, just plain!

        says:

        When doing any research, start with your birth certificate, and follow the Native American blood lines, Mother/father, grandparent. each will have a birth/death/baptismal record. And some will accept affidavits like your grand mother’s sister is on the rolls ….as long as you can prove a blood relation. You can get your CDIB – Certificate of Degree of Indian Blood or Certificate of Degree. I do Native Genealogy
