Cheesy Fry Bread
1 pound loaf frozen bread dough, thawed
3 tbsp. butter or margarine, softened
2 tbsp. finely chopped ramp or leek
2 to 3 tsp. chili powder
1/2 t. dried white sage
1/2 t. garlic powder
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
With its pretty color and cheesy topping, this buttery bread is delicious with soups.
Pat dough onto the bottom and up the sides of a greased 14-inch pizza pan or 15x10-inch baking pan, forming a crust. Spread with butter. Sprinkle with onion, paprika, oregano and garlic powder. Prick the crust several times with a fork; sprinkle with cheese.
Cover and let rise in a warm place for 30 minutes. Bake at 375 for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.
