I never made this recipe, my grandmother use to make it. She made them kind of like a biscuit one time and kind of like a pancake another time...

She told me that this was an old recipe that her parents learned from Native Americans.

How to Make Native American Fried Squash Bread

Step-by-Step

  • 1Put diced squash in a large pot. Boil until cooked tender. Drain (saving 11/4 cups of water from the pot).

    Put squash and water into pot.
  • 2Put remaining ingredients into the pot and mix together.
  • 3Put oil in a skillet and when hot, put batter into skillet and fry until golden brown.
  • 4This recipe comes out two ways (unless you make adjustments)
    1. Depending on the moisture of the squash, it comes out like a dough that can be formed into patties.
    2 Depending on the moisture of the squash, it comes out like more of a batter like making pancakes...

    Try it both ways, and adjust the recipe to your liking.
