Potato Lefse

Lefse is a Scandinavian type of flatbread similar in size and shape to a tortilla. Lefse recipes contain simple basic ingredients: potatoes and flour. It is most often spread with butter, sprinkled with sugar, then rolled up and eaten as a "sweet treat." Lefse is also often used as a "wrap" for meats, cheeses or any other filling that you might use for a sandwich.

The lefse is best when baked on a special lefse grill, however we have had good success making it on a stovetop pancake griddle as well.

I did mine on the stove.

I boiled golden potatoes, mashed and added salt, pepper and Parmesan cheese and flour.

It was tough to roll...but easier if you wait until it's completely cooled, better yet put it in the fridge to get cold.
