Roscoe was my Step-dad and had been a cook in the Navy. Leather Bread was one of the favorites he was asked to make. It is so good!!

Thank you! My mother called it leather bread & grandma called it skillet bread. I did not remember her how they made it but it was such a great memory . Soooooo happy you posted it under that name. Thanks again.
