      This review is for the fried bread only. I have made this about 7 times. The bread was a hit with my family. I rolled the dough very thin and they still swelled too thick when fried. I found if I poked the dough with a fork (like when you tenderize meat), it takes the air bubbles out of the bread and you get a more uniform bread. Also, I found using a kabob stick to stab the bread and flip it like a donut makes less of a mess than spatulas, tongs, etc.

      I make this recipe all the time and absolutely love it! I saw that somebody asked about making the shells a good shape--I always roll out the dough, and then put a small round container on it (i.e. a cool whip container), then trace around it with a knife. Works like a charm! Excellent recipe.

      I just made this for my family. My bread looked really bad but tasted sooooo good. I followed the direction exactly for the bread; even when it looked as though it was going to be a mess i kept going. My problem was it did not rise the way I thought it was going to or the way it looked in the picture. The shape was...well there was no real shape, certainaly not circular. Can you or anyone else give me any help with the bread.
