Squaw Bread
(Makes 3 flat loaves about 10" in diameter and 1/2 inch thick)

5 c flour
2 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 Tbsp melted butter
2 c milk
Cooking oil for frying bread

1. Sift 4 cups of the flour with the baking powder and salt.
2. Combine milk and melted butter.
3. Place flour/baking powder mixture in a large bowl and add the liquid ingredients, a little at a time, beating them in at first with a egg beater.
4. When 4 cups have been worked into a soft dough with the milk, lightly flour a board with part of the remaining cup of flour. Turn the dough onto the board and knead lightly, working in the rest of the flour.
5. Divide the dough into three parts and shape each into a round pone about 1/8 inch thick and a diameter to fit the skillet you plan to fry the bread in.
6.Pour enough cooking oil into the skillet to measure about 1/4 inch deep.
7. Heat the oil then brown the breads quickly, one at a time until golden on both sides.
8. Cut into wedges and serve at once.

What is best to serve with this bread? Is this a major part of the meal? I know that some fried breads make up much of the meal in itself.

Man, I can eat the stuff by itself!

Typically, you eat it along with your meal, like white bread. Most people use it for sopping. Yum-O!

If you ever go to a Pow Wow, there'll be stands that sell Indian Tacos. They just replace the tortilla with fry bread.

Oh, on the Pow Wow, here's an FYI, don't touch a dancers blanket and/or sit in their seat. Big no no. lol You might be scalped fot it. :eek:
