WoodenKnife Indian Fry Bread Mix

On a trip to the Badlands of South Dakota we stopped at Cedar Pass Lodge in the Badlands National Park where we had yummy Indian Fry Bread.  It was so good that I purchased a box of WoodenKnife Indian Fry Bread Mix to try and make it at home.

The mix had a long shelf life (2 years), but I could not wait any longer…fry bread and Indian Tacos were calling my name. Without thinking, I decided to use the entire 1.5 pound box. It made more than a dozen meal sized servings. (They were super easy to make). Luckily, the dough lasts well in the refrigerator a couple of days. So, we were able to eat Indian Fry Bread for multiple meals. It was as good (if not better) as what we ate at Cedar Pass Lodge.

However, it has left me without any WoodenKnife Indian Fry Bread mix 🙁 It is a good thing I can order more via the company’s website.

WoodenKnife Indian Fry Bread Mix is made in Interior, South Dakota, which is just outside of one of the
gates to the Badlands National Park. According to their website, Ansel WoodenKnife started the company after getting requests to market the fry bread mix he served in a his cafe. I am happy he did.

The woman who checked me out when I bought the mix warned me that I needed to purchase more as it was addictive. She was right. I think a warning that one box is just not enough should be on the box or at least the shelf 🙂
