Fried Bread is a very simple bread recipe that is served mainly for breakfast. These are great served with the same toppings as biscuits, including butter, jam, gravy, or any of your other favorites.



  1. Mix equal amounts of self-rising flour and milk. The mixture should be the consistency of thick pudding—add more milk or flour to desired consistency.
  2. Heat enough bacon fat to prevent sticking in an iron skillet until it is very hot.
  3. Fry spoonfuls of dough in the skillet until brown and crispy on the bottom. Turn and continue frying until done.

Notes, tips, and variationsEdit

  • Other oils and types of skillets can be used for frying but bacon fat and an iron skillet makes the best. A mixture of ½ bacon fat and ½ olive oil is an acceptable substitute.
  • Old bread from a bakery or shop can be used to fry, best if fresh but stale bread can be made edible if fried.
