Customer Suggestions for Ease of Baking, or Altering Recipes

Customer Suggestions

Over the years, our customers have proved quite innovative. We have been told of ways they have found to alter our instructions and recipes to create ways to make them edible to some with allergy issues as well as turning a great product into something completely different. If you choose to follow any of the adaptations, you do so at your own risk! We are merely spreading the love!

Recipe Alterations:

  1. Hint for Cutting in the Butter: we have a customer who recommends putting the butter into the freezer for about 15 minutes before you plan on beginning to make one of our scones. She then uses a fine cheese grater to grate the butter evenly over the mix. She then stirs the butter into the mix evenly. It works very easy and it saves work when cutting in with forks or knives.
  2. Cheddar Garlic Biscuits: a customer says to use Pepper Jack cheese instead of cheddar to add a little 'kick' to the biscuits.
  3. Scones: we have had several customers tell us that they replace the sour cream in our recipes with the same amount of yogurt, which gives the same amount of moisture to the scone, but seems to intensify the flavor. Greek yogurt can also be used and will have double the protein, however, you must also add a small amount of milk because of the thickness of the yogurt. You can match the yogurt flavor with the flavor of the scone (blueberry yogurt with blueberry scone, etc), or you can make new flavor combinations of your own invention!
  4. Allergy Alteration: a customer whose child is very allergic to sour cream and milk says that she makes our scones by bypassing the sour cream / half&half combo and instead using all soy milk or rice milk. She personally uses rice milk. Her only warning is that because soy milk is thinner than sour cream, you may need to add slightly more flour if the dough is too sticky. 
  5. Ice Cream Treats: we have had customers that suggest serving some of our 'fresh from the oven scones' with a scoop or two of delicious ice cream. Scones eaten this way and recommended are: Cranberry White Chocolate, Lemon White Chocolate, Orange dark Chocolate, and our Southern Butter Pecan. There are many ways and flavors you can combine with this suggestions. You are only limited by your imagination and your taste buds!

Recipes for Fry Bread 

 Our Fry Bread can be made and served with honey-butter, cinnamon-sugar, or powdered sugar.

Many of our customers have said they just fry the bread and spread it with butter to eat with soups and stews or with chilli. 

Breakfast

Serve Fry Bread loaded on top with scrambled eggs, bacon, shredded cheese, and salsa for a delicious and different take on breakfast.

Lunch

Try a very thick chilli scooped on top of the fry bread with a dollop of sour cream on top. It may get messy, but it will be worth it! Our favorite way to eat it is with some homemade pulled pork on top of our delicious fry bread with chunky guacamole and of course, sour cream!

Dinner

A tradition with fry bread is to use it in place of a tortilla or taco shell. Indian tacos have been around for years and often can be found at local fairs and community get togethers. Put the taco meat of your choice, lettuce, cheese, salsa, sour cream, guacamole, or any other topping your tacos usally have, together on top of the freshly fried Fry Bread. It will melt your taste buds!
