Tasty Tuesday: Grandma's Lefse

Welcome to Tasty Tuesdays, where Changeling authors share their favorite specialty recipes.

Hi Cyberspace, if you don't know what the heck lefse is you've been missing out.  When I eat this delicious potato flatbread, it reminds me of my childhood holidays. Spread on a thick layer of butter and sprinkle this with sugar for a wonderful treat.  My family has always enjoyed this with white sugar, but my husband’s clan insists on brown sugar. This is also great with meatballs and gravy rolled up inside.  The biggest key to success is putting the potatoes in a ricer and making the sheet as thin as possible. 

5 c. prepared russet potatoes
1 ½ tsp. salt
5 T. canola oil
2 c. flour

Cook about 5 pounds of potatoes; drain well.  Put through a ricer, Measure, and then chill. Add salt, oil, and enough flour to roll the dough easily.  Roll as thin as possible before baking on a preheated lefse or pancake griddle.  Turn to prevent scorching.
