Fry Bread, Scones, or Elephant Ears

I love fry bread (or, as we call them in Utah, scones) for a variety of reasons. Growing up, my dad would make Rhodes scones for special breakfasts. We would slather them in homemade jam or honey and eat way too many. I'm also a big Navajo taco fan, and this recipe is an excellent way to make delicious little Navajo tacos for dinner! There's nothing like the way Rhodes dough turns into a delicious golden treat, simultaneously crisp and chewy, and of course, totally delicious.

We had our scones for breakfast this morning. Care to join us?

 

Thaw your Rhodes rolls. The recipe calls for twelve, but with just my husband and I, we went with four. Thawing the dough is easy. My favorite way to do it is to drop the frozen rolls in a zippered plastic bag and put them in the fridge overnight. When you come back in the morning, they'll be perfectly thawed and ready to go!

Next, flatten your rolls with your hands or a rolling pin to 4-5" circles. I used my hands, and I didn't measure. "Thin" is good enough for me! The dough looks shiny because I used pan spray to keep them from sticking to each other and the table.

Heat 2-3" of oil to 375 degrees Fahrenheit in a heavy pan. If you don't have a thermometer, medium-high heat is about where you will achieve this temperature. I used a saucepan to help contain some of the oil splatter. It worked! Add one of your flattened pieces of dough. It will turn golden quickly, so keep an eye on it.

Carefully flip the fry bread and cook until the other side is also golden.

Remove from the oil with tongs or a spider and lay on a plate covered with paper towels or a rack to drain excess oil.

Repeat with your remaining rolls. Serve hot with your favorite toppings: jam, butter, honey, or seasoned ground beef, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, guacamole, and sour cream for Navajo tacos. Enjoy!

Navajo Frybread, scones, and elephant ears are 3 different things. Go to the San Juan County fair in North western New Mexico some time. You'll see that there is a big difference between all three.

You can also serve frybread with beans, cheese, sour cream, and veggies to make a Navajo taco.
