My Mother used to make us She learned from her Mother. I have Iroquois, Cree, Chippewa, Sioux, Assiniboine, Ottawa, Blackfoot, French, Scottish........ Mom would also make up a big mess of Fry Bread to go with them. She would use hamburger meat, onions cut very tiny, salt and pepper and enough flour to bind them together well. She would make them the size of meatballs, and let them boil for hours until a nice thick gravy was visible in the pot. I'm telling you they were good. I make them a few times a year, but can never get them to taste as good as hers.
