Indian Frybread

Valeree Dunbar


I found this recipe on facebook and just had to try it. This is a wonderful bread that can be used as a dessert by topping with honey, powdered sugar, etc. or can be used for main dishes such as topping with taco ingredients for an "Indian Taco". My family loved it.
