Skillet Bread

Print PrintShare with Friends

This is from The Art of American Indian Cooking by Y. Kimball & J. Anderson. It's quick and easy, and makes a good "camp" bread. I've made it both at home, and over a campfire. Cooking time is approximate as it will depend on your heat. This is especially true if cooking it over a campfire.
