"I've lived on the Seneca Nation of Indians Reservation now for over 35 years and used to always get this bread when I went to the annual pow wows. This is an authentic Seneca (A tribe of the Iroquois Federation) recipe and is good to eat either warm or cold. I enjoy taking several to work to snack on during the day."

"These tasty little pan-fried biscuits are very good and super fast to prepare! It took me a little more than 1 cup of water to make a batter consistency. I fried the first half in canola oil (didn't have any shortening or lard) and then I experimented and fried the second half of the recipe in a lightly oiled non-stick pan. The canola batch was a lot more flavorful, but the non-stick batch was a lot lighter. The dry milk really added richness to the bread. Thank you for this relaying this terrific Seneca recipe!"
"Great bread! I used a little extra salt. So yummy with honey! I ate it with some curried cauliflower and potatoes too. Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. "
"Good stuff. First time making fry bread of any type. I did have a little trouble wih the batter as it needed more water than it called for, but I live at a slightly higher elevation. Great recipe and thanks for posting it."
"These were fantastic. We made an entire NATIVE AMERICAN meal last night and really enjoyed the Seneca Ghost Bread. They were just a tad greasy - I might experiment to make them just a touch lighter- will make these again & again. TASTY!"
"Wow! I've spent years trying to find a fry bread that came close to my grandmother's. This is it!! Thank you so much for posting this and I'm sure I will use it for a long, long time. I also had to add a bit more water, but not a problem. This bread is awesome with cinnamon sugar and butter or by itself."
