    Doubled the recipe, formed into 20- 5 inch discs, quick fried them all and called the family into the kitchen 2 at a time so they could get them as they came out of the pan. Served with seasoned ground beef, chili, salsa, cheese, sour cream , shredded lettuce, refried black beans.I was told that this could be a repeat dinner any time. Served 6 very hungry adults.

    I never thought I'd find a recipe that even came close to my dad's bannock (Plains Cree) or the wonderful Smelqmix elders of the Okanagan-Similkameen but this one comes close enough. I was always taught it was important to thank the creator and be in the right mood or your food would not turn out but this recipe is fool proof! Musi cho! (Great Thanks!)

    Made 9 discs as is. I used a blender to mix. Now whenever we run out of bread and have a craving we will go to this. Didn't dip or add anything just ate as is. Everyone loved it!

    Absolutely amazing I let it rise then cut the ball in half rolled it out into a circle stuffed it with meat cheese and beans sealed it and fried it or you can stuff it with your favorite pizza toppings and cheese (don't add sauce inside it will turn into a terrible mess) but like I said amazing

    My daughter helped me make this for her Native American party at her school. It was a hit and all the kids LOVED it!!! We made 16 little disks instead of 4-6 big disks cut them in 4's and had little tastes for everyone to try. There were plenty for all 26 students plus 8 adults....plenty for everyone to have 3rds :) I would definitely recommend this for anyone that is doing a project with their kids in school. It is quick, easy and fun!!
