For breakfast the next day, we took the Enchanted Mesa Motel owners' advice and headed to Ted's Taco, a stand located next to Log Cabin Liquor, for Navajo frybread.
Best. Frybread. Ever.
Gourmet Pigs opted for the camp bread, $6.50, an open-faced frybread topped with sausage, green chile, eggs, cheese, and tomatoes.
I got the frybread breakfast sandwich, $6.25, with bacon, eggs, and cheese. It was huge. Easily 8 inches in diameter.
Look at that lovely puffy frybread.
We ate these in the car on our way to Mesa Verde National Park. The cheese had melted into a lovely gooeyness and the frybread was crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Reminded me a lot of my mom's banh tieu (Vietnamese frybread).
A very hearty breakfast to be sure, but with all the hiking we did that day, very much needed fuel.
I was debating whether to tag this as "Navajo," or "Native American," or just "American." This is what keeps me up at night! In the end, since I consider "Hawaiian" also "American," and don't create a separate tag for that, neither did I here. I'm all about being inclusive! I don't have separate tags for "Cantonese" or "Sichuan," but include those under "Chinese" cuisine so it only made sense to be consistent. What do you think?
