Tender squares of bread dough deep fried to a golden brown, seasoned with kosher salt while they are hot. This is a great snack or can be used served with a salad. You can even dust them with cinnamon sugar mixture instead of the salt. Enjoy!

Ingredients

a ball of dough from my basic bread recipe
oil for frying
kosher salt or
cinnamon sugar mixture

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Using my Basic Bread recipe after the first rise of the dough, separate it into a loaf, save some for sweet rolls or whatever you wish, and keep out a small ball to make Baker's Squares.
2
Roll out the dough on a lightly floured cutting board into a rectangle about 1/2 inch thick. Take a pizza cutter and cut dough into 1 1/2 inch squares. (They don't have to be pretty!)
3
Place the squares about one inch apart, cover, and let rise again for about 15 to 20 minutes until their thickness has doubled.
4
Meanwhile, heat corn oil in an electric skillet to about 400 degrees. (You can use a deep skillet, if you don't have an electric skillet or deep fryer) I only use about an inch of oil. Use tongs to handle squares.
5
Drop the squares in, but don't overcrowd them, no more than 5 or 6 at a time. They will puff up while frying. They only need about 1 minute per side. Turn over once when they are golden brown and then turn them and do the other side.
6
Remove and drain, and sprinkle with plenty of kosher salt. Eat right away.
