I’m about 1/4 Cherokee and exactly 1/2 Irish…a white boy who is virtually hairless(except for my head which has wonderful curley locks) and can catch a tan.
There is a native American place in Bryson City, NC that sells fry bread. I pass…
If it helps any I am American Indian, Kiowa to be exact.
I eat it nearly everyday. You can use peanut oil if it bothers you too much. Not much different than eating cornbread cooked in oil everyday. Both bread, both suck up oil. Heck, I’ve even seen some elders use Pam cooking spray. Don’t taste as good to me.
Fry bread is a native American thing and is a heart stopper. Eat much of it and you’ll never see north of fifty, IMHO.
Well, you learn something new everyday, we just call it grilled fry bread rofl. Yeah I know, no frying involved that way. We make it that way when we camp and supposedly it’s a bit healthier for you.
Have fun and hope it works out for ya.
Thanks, you just answered the question. The grilled version of fry bread was what was referred to as dry bread. It bubbles and rises just as you have described. Now I will just have to see if I can do it inside because I do not always have a grill available to me.
No idea if the recipe is the same since I’ve never heard of dry bread.
I cook my fry bread in a cast iron skillet with about 1 inch of oil, medium-high heat, turning once, cooking each side 2-3 mins. Drain on paper towels.
You can also grill it. Just lay it on the racks, watch for the bubbles and when it rises a little bit, then turn and repeat. If you get it brown it’s over done, it’s suppose to be light colored and dry on the outside and moist on the inside. Same way if you fry it, it shouldn’t be very brown.
In his recent TV series "Feasting on Asphalt", Alton Brown ate both fry bread and dry bread. I have a few questions:
1) Is the recipe for dry bread the same as for fry bread? I have found a recipe for fry bread and was wondering if that would work.
2) Can you cook on a large cast iron skillet or a comal instead of an outdoor grill?
3) Do you use high, medium, or low heat.
Thanks in advance.
