Jim Baird is featured in the recent Facebook video shared on the official Facebook page of Field and Stream.

The video is about making delicious Navajo-style fry bread over a campfire.

Jim said, “So today, we are going to make Navajo-style fry bread. And so what we have in this bag is all purpose flour, a little bit of baking powder and some salt,” he added.

He also mentions the things that you need to prepare in order to make a fry bread.

Make sure you have a frying pan, some water, some butter or fat, cooking oil, grill and a pot.

First, you need to add about 2 ½ cups dry mix, then butter. After that, add 1 cup of water and mix all together.

According to Jim, the dough should have dry consistency.

The next step is to make a lightly knead and form piece thin like a flat pancake. Once you are done, you need to make sure that the oil sounds nice and hot before placing the dough.

When the color of the dough changes into golden brown, then it’s time to flip it and cook the other side.

All purpose flour salt is killing us. That was never our foods


True yes but still good and it’s camping , why not. Most camp food is comfort food


I don’t think you can find a “mix” in the wild… I thought this article would be about making real fry bread…
