Personal Notes:
Granny made these for the McKinney gang all the time. Later, she began to use the frozen bread dough. When we went camping together, especially the Wallowa vacation, she was famous for the fry bread.
It is still a favorite.
You can buy fry bread on the way to Bend. Kalama Fry Bread.
Don't miss the opportunity to share this yummy bread with the family and keep a Granny tradition going.
