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.
- Self-rising flour
- Milk (whole milk or buttermilk with ⅛ tsp baking soda added)
- 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.
- Heat enough bacon fat to prevent sticking in an iron skillet until it is very hot.
- 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.
