Make this simple skillet bread recipe in 15 minutes, its nutritious, tastes good and is easy to prepare. 

My mom tells stories of the best bread she's ever tasted, and it came from MOTHER EARTH NEWS sometime in 1980. She says I helped my dad make it while she was studying when she was in school at the University of Houston. 

I think it was just called Skillet Bread, something like a pita or nan. Do you have this recipe?
