My Mother was from Pittsburgh, my Father from Pocatello. They met in Pendleton, Oregon at the end of the World War II, but I don't believe East really met West until Dad told Mom how to flatten her bread dough and fry it.
We called them “dough-gods”, which must have been an Eastern Idaho expression.
Start with dough you've already made:
📌 White or wheat bread dough that has raised
and been punched down once or twice.
- ✔︎ Cut off a piece of dough the size of a lemon.
- ✔︎ Press flat on a floured board with your hand to about a 1/2” thick.
Preheat oil (about 1 inch deep) in large pan.
- ✔︎ Fry in oil on each side until golden brown.
Eat warm with butter, powdered sugar or jam.
