This review is for the fried bread only. I have made this about 7 times. The bread was a hit with my family. I rolled the dough very thin and they still swelled too thick when fried. I found if I poked the dough with a fork (like when you tenderize meat), it takes the air bubbles out of the bread and you get a more uniform bread. Also, I found using a kabob stick to stab the bread and flip it like a donut makes less of a mess than spatulas, tongs, etc.
