State Bread – Pan de Campo

Pan de Campo was adopted as the Texas state bread on June 18, 2005. Pan de Campo is also called Cowboy bread and is a sort of flat bread. The bread was eaten by Cowboys who worked the ranches in early Texas. The cowboys prepared it in small portable ovens which gave it its distinct texture and flavor. Pan de Campo was highly debated over when being chosen because some believed it was more of a South Texas regional food than state wide. The legislature referred to it as “a singular stature in Texas history and culture that is rivaled only by its undeniable appeal as a versatile and satisfying food.”
