Garlic Fry Bread Recipe

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

This is not a diet meal. This is a “once in a great while because I want to indulge” kind of thing. They are amazing. They go perfectly with spaghetti, as a appetizer on pizza night, or with anything you would normally serve garlic bread with.

Start by mixing up a batch of pizza dough. Let it rise, and then punch down.

Melt your butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat.

Add garlic and cook 30 seconds. Remove from heat and mix in garlic salt and parsley. Set aside. Preheat your oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Take golf-ball sized balls of dough and flatten in your hand into an oval shape. Place one into the preheated oil and fry until golden brown on one side.

Flip and fry until golden on the other side and remove from pan. Test it to make sure the inside is fully cooked and not doughy. If all is well with your oil temperature, fry the rest of the dough as you did the first in batches. If the inside is still doughy, reduce the heat a bit before frying more bread.

Remove when done from oil and brush on both sides with garlic butter mixture.

Serve hot, and enjoy this “once in a while” treat!
