Indian Fry Bread Recipe — 25 Comments

    • Hey Sue, She made it look really easy. The dough is pressed on the floured board so that it’s not sticky, and you just flip your hand back and forth and the dough just does its thing! But I bet you’re right—it does take practice. I’m sure Mrs. Coach will chime in once she realizes her recipe is posted up! Good to hear from you!

  1. Those just look so good. It’s that frying part that gives me pause – I’m trying so hard to change my eating habits and lose a few pounds in the process, so I’m trying to move away from such things. Of course, when I think about those pistolettes from Schmoopy’s, these look positively healthy in comparison!

    • Ah yes, those delectable seafood stuffed pistolettes at Schmoopy’s. Mrs. Coach did not try one of those juicy delights. She will just have to come back and partake of the sinfulness of which we speak. We are ALL trying to eat better and lose a few, but sometimes, we just have to give in a little to hang in for the long haul. Happy 4th, Linda! BW

    • You can make it with whole wheat flour to add to the nutrition of it and use canola oil for frying. Somewhere I have a healthy version recipe…

  2. When I give them a try, I too will make sure I’m outside. The gas powered blower will make clean up go much faster. LOL! I KNOW I’ll make a BIG mess. AND…Hubby will have to do the clean up. He’s done something to the blower where only he can start the thing.

  3. Nice. I have been fighting the urge to make donuts all year.
    I am still tweaking the flour tortilla pizzas but the are at least a bit healthy. Out to clean up the big kenmore in the 100 heat.

  4. Ohhhhh yummy! Thanks for posting the recipe! I have got to try these. I love honey on hot bread (and rice, especially spanish rice) but, I have to be careful and not have too much or I have breathing problems. I did purchase some agave to use in/on things. Maybe it will work good too if I mix it with a bit of butter first.

    OK, now what are seafood stuffed pistolettes??

    • Oh, Cammy, I don’t make the seafood pistolettes! We have to go to Schmoopy’s restaurant over on the next bayou for those. Do you know what a pistolette is? I don’t know if grocery stores in TX sell them. It’s a roll, of course. I don’t know how they do it, but they stuff it full of a shrimp and crabmeat mixture that tastes a lot like their seafood bisque, and then they deep fry it. No, not so healthy, but man they are delicious.

  5. Thanks for the info. I looked it up and found some interesting recipes for the pistolettes. Some are baked instead of fried. Cooler weather will have to arrive first though. Not turning on an oven in 100º+ weather. Especially with only a window unit to cook this place.

  6. Happy Jim Morrison Death Day. Mr Mojo Rising.

    I see a contest guess the year BW brain fried?

    I caught goggle eyes tonight on 2wt….

  7. I must have done something wrong on this post, because Mrs. Coach never said a word about it! Hmmmm . . . . on a different note . . . . I just want y’all to know that my mock strawberry preserve recipe using figs is at the top of the list on Ask. com and this blog has averaged 1000 hits for the last few days—folks making fig preserves looking for a recipe are finding us here and using the family recipe for old fashioned fig preserves!!! Woo hoo!

  8. Hey, that is great! The figs over here aren’t ready yet and if they ever do get ripe, they will be pre-cooked before we pick them.

    Hubby got me a new bbq grill/smoker since the old one has a lot of holes burned into and even the JBweld is falling off. We put it together last night in front of the AC and rolled it out to storage for the night and today, I had to “season” it for tomorrows cooking. Lord have mercy but, it was hot out there! We saturated that thing with cooking oil, put a medium size pile of charcoal in it and fired it up. That was about 1:30pm and I checked it a few minutes ago at 11pm and that charcoal is still hot!! I put what I would normally start off with to smoke a large amount of meat with my regular charcoal too. That was some cheap stuff from WalMart and it burned hotter and longer than any I have ever tried. Got to get another bag of that stuff.


  9. The post looks great! The kids got such a kick out of you taking pictures of the food. Im so glad you enjoyed the tacos, next time I will bring buffalo with me. I will also do the grape dumplings, I just couldnt wait to eat the crab and couldnt focus long enough to make them.

    We did have the seafood things at Schmoopys… die for! I made gumbo yesterday, it wasnt as good as Schmoopys but it was still yummy! Im thinking today I will make fry bread and put the gumbo on top!

    I finally got all 400 pictures developed.

  10. Let me know when y’all are coming back. I’m just a couple hours away. I haven’t had buffalo (burger)since 1991 and have never had grape dumplings.

  11. Looks delicious! My papaw made something he called fry bread, but it was pretty much just cornmeal and hot water mixed to just the right consistency, then fried. He served it with a salad wilted in bacon grease.

    • Hey. Jess. We call what your pawpaw made “dog bread”. We eat it with fresh corn “off” the cob, purple-hull peas, fresh sliced tomatoes, and cantaloupe! That was our standard summer meal when I was growing up! I think I”ll cook that up next week!
