Several years ago, I was out on the Navajo reservation. I had some bread that they called Navajo bread. I asked how it was made, and the recipe was shared with me. Pretty sure it was a fried biscuit, but not sure if exactly the same. I've since lost my recipe. Does anyone know how to make this? Is it just a fried biscuit?
Thanks for any help

My dad called them "hoe cakes".
They would mix it up, pat it out and lay it on the backside of their hoe and hold it over a fire in the cotton field.
That was their lunch.

Yeah that white privilege he grew up with.
