Fry-bread by Cowman

Have I told you lately that I love Cowman? I have many reasons, but I am only here to share one of them with you at the moment. He is a great cook! I love nights when he decides to cook and I am free to just sit back and watch. He made Fry-Bread tacos tonight which is one of his favorites, as it is easy, filling, and all the kids love it! The fact that there is no grumbling about what’s for dinner makes this recipe a keeper! The fact that I don’t have to cook is a good reason also!

Another wonderful thing about fry-bread? It does not have just one job. Dinner bread? check!  Taco shell? check! Breakfast? check! Yes, breakfast too! Warm, drizzled with honey and sprinkled with powdered sugar…..oh boy I may need to make more in the morning! Yes, I believe I shall. Why not go ahead and join us?!

This is a very ugly dough if I do say so myself. And on top of being ugly it’s tough to work with. Thankfully what it lacks in looks it makes up for in taste! Now you are going to knead this hunk of ugliness  into some semblance of order.

See?! Even after kneading it’s still not pretty.

Now divide this into 12 equal pieces….

and attempt to roll them out to your desired size.  This is the time when I need to warn you that the rolling out of this dough is not easy. It is very elastic and just when you think you have managed to make it listen to you, it springs back into a pathetic little circle that is not big enough to do anything with. And Don’t flour your counter, you want it to be able to ‘stick’ to something or you will be fighting a losing battle! Just keep at it and it will eventually give up and listen. Now if only I could get the kids to follow this example!

While you are doing this, place your lard in a big pan, cast iron is perfect for this, and heat it up so it’s really hot. When it is, place a piece of bread in and watch it get all puffy.

This part doesn’t take long so don’t let them burn! When they look nice and golden flip them and repeat.

Now the rest is up to you. How will you be consuming these? Simple bread, taco shells, or breakfast? As I mentioned at the beginning of this, we chose taco’s .
