Fry Bread – ‘Utah Scone’Alexandra Holdeman
Collected from the Native knowledge of our state, Utah loves fry bread. Although, in Utah, we have learned to call them scones. If you haven’t had an infamous ‘utah scone’ you sure are missing out on one of the most versatile and simple morsel.
For the longest time, I didn’t know that there could be any other type of scone. I became a server at a small cafe and after serving a couple from out of state I learned very quickly after dropping off their plate with a scone the size of their head on it, and with freshly whipped honey butter. That in other states, in most of the world. This wonderful little treat is just a simple frybread.
In celebration of Native American Day, we wanted to share this infamous Utah recipe we adopted. The great thing about Utah Scones, is how many meals you can make from them. From breakfast sides to taco dinners. You can make many different dishes extra special.
