DeWayne, here is dad's fry bread recipe. It's real easy to make. Just combine all the ingredients in a bowl, and 'pinch' off a ball. Pat it out a little and place it in a pan of hot oil , normally in about 350 degrees. That's the main thing, the oil NEEDS to be hot.

Now, you only need to let it cook on one side for a couple of minutes. The way dad explained it to me is that when the dough starts to float then it's ready to be flipped over. Let it cook on that side for a few minutes and that's it. You'd just have to practicee with it. The way dad showed me is that when it starts floating on top just kinda lift it up on one end to see if the bottom is brown enough. If it is, then flip it over and let it cook on that side. Hope this helps some. I never could get my fry bread done like dad did. You had his fry bread. He had one of the busiest fry bread stands at the pow wows. Everyone liked his fry bread!

You can finish it up anyway you want to. When it's hot, put powder sugar on top or honey, that's real good. Or you can use it as a base for tacos. Either way, it's real good.
