LEFSE (USING HUNGRY JACK POTATOES)
Lefse (sounds like "left sa" ) is a Norwegian flat bread made from potatoes. I have been making this recipe for about 35 years. This is very good. Our family eats this every holiday and sometimes for birthdays. People eat it with butter and sugar, butter, jams and jellies,and peanut butter. Traditionally, you spread it...

- 1. Combine potato flakes and salt in a mixing bowl, set aside.
- 2. Put the 1/4 cup of butter in a 1-cup measuring cup and add enough water to make a full 1-cup measure. Put this into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Add this to the bowl with potato flakes, mix well with a fork. Add milk and mix well. Refrigerate until mix is completely chilled. Do not let the surface get dry.
- 3. When dough is chilled, work in flour with your hands. Form into balls that are a little larger than a golf ball. Place in a container lined with a towel. refrigerate overnight.
- 4. The next day, roll out the dough very thin on a cloth covered pastry board dusted with flour. Bake on the Heritage Grill (Lefse Griddle... or any large stove top griddle) that has been preheated to 500 degrees. This recipe makes approximately 12 lefse.
- 5. *** Use a grooved lefse rolling pin to make the lefse. Roll it out very thin. Cook the lefse until bubbles appear, and when you check the underside... the bubble areas are golden brown or a bit darker. Then flip over and wait for the bubbles again.
- 6. Cool and wrap in plastic wrap to keep fresh. Refrigerate.

I was raised on Lefse as a special treat for the holidays. We still make it every holiday season, and this is the best recipe ever. We eat ours with butter and sugar. Note: you will need a potato ricer to prepare this recipe.

INSTANT POTATO NORWEGIAN LEFSE
This is a traditional Norwegian dish that my Great Grandmother, Mina Taylor, would make that was handed down to us. As children, we always had lefse for our Christmas Morning breakfast. I found an easy way using instant potatoes and this makes the process a lot easier to make the lefse in the mornings! We would eat the cooked lefse by rolling the lefse in cooked bacon with cream cheese and it is so good that way! I am not including the refrigeration time, which could be anywhere from 2 hours to overnight, which is what I do when I make them for Christmas morning. You could also try using a gluten free flour to see if it would be used for a gluten free diet.

- In a large saucepan or pot, bring the water to boil and add the milk, butter, sugar, and salt. When the milk has come to a boil, add the potato flakes and stir until smooth. Pour the potatoes into a large bowl and refrigerate.
- When ready to make the lefse, take out 2 cups of potatoes at a time and add 1 to 1 1/2 cups of flour and stir until it becomes a workable dough. Flour a counter surface and roll the dough out as thin as possible. Cut individual slices with the a round cookie cutter, or the top of a medium sized glass.
- Add about 1 tsp oil to a skillet pan and cook the lefse for about 3-5 minutes, or when brown blisters start to form on the top. Flip and cook for another 3-5 minutes.
- Continue to cook the individual slices until the potato dough is gone. You may be able to cook several lefse at a time if you have a large enough skillet, if not cook one at a time. Any leftover cooked lefse may be refrigerate and used for about 3-5 more days.
Lefse, thin potato-dough flatbreads like Scandinavian tortillas, or Oslo injera, can be found on holiday tables throughout the upper Midwest, wherever Norwegian families settled to farm. The recipe is adapted from Ethel Ramstad, 90, who learned it from one Ollie Amundson in North Dakota decades ago. We picked it up when she was teaching it to Molly Yeh, 25, a Chicago-raised food blogger marrying Ms. Ramstad's great-nephew, on a farm in the Red River Valley, right before Thanksgiving. The riced potato mixture that forms the basis of the dough should be very, very cold when it is rolled out, to prevent stickiness. And although you do not need a lefse griddle to make great lefse, a lefse stick - essentially a long, thin, wooden spatula - is an admirable investment in success.

- Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Cook potatoes until tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain well.
- Rice potatoes into a large bowl, continuing until you have 8 cups. Add oil, evaporated milk, sugar and salt, and mix well. Let cool, then cover and refrigerate for a few hours, or overnight.
- When ready to make lefse, add 2 1/2 cups flour and mix well. Divide dough into two logs if you have a lefse grill, and four if you do not. Dough should be sticky and hold together, but not so sticky it's impossible to work with; if necessary, add remaining 1/2 cup flour. Cut each log into 9 or 10 pieces, shape into small balls and place on plates in refrigerator.
- If you have a lefse grill, heat it to 400 degrees. If you don't have a lefse grill, set a wide, low-lipped nonstick pan over medium-high heat.
- Generously dust work space with flour and flour a rolling pin. Roll one dough ball in flour, then use the heel of your hand to press it into a thick disk. If you have a lefse grill, gently roll dough into a large, thin circle (if you are using a regular pan, roll into a thin circle just smaller than the size of your pan), lifting and flipping frequently so it doesn't stick; use more flour as needed. Brush excess flour from dough. Use a lefse stick to carefully transfer to grill (use a thin spatula if cooking in a pan). Cook for 1 minute, or until lefse is steaming and small bubbles appear on uncooked side. Using lefse stick or spatula, flip lefse and cook for 45 seconds or so. Place lefse on a clean dish towel and cover with another. Repeat, stacking lefse atop one another between the dish towels.

These Norwegian Potato Pancakes can either be served for breakfast of dessert. The potatoes have to be mashed and cooled so do this ahead of time. (not included in time to make)

- Peel and Cook potatoes in boiling water till done; mash with a potato masher or electric mixer, till smooth.
- Measure out two cups of the mashed potato and set whatever you have left over aside (we will only be using 2 cups of potato for this recipe, you can season the left over mashed potato and have it for dinner! ).
- Combine mashed potatoes, milk, salt, sugar, and butter to it, then then mash together again until it's all blended.
- Put your finished mashed potatoes into a sealed container and chill in the fridge till cold (about 2 hours); The mashed potatoes must be cold and then will be slightly stiff.
- Measure out your 1 1/2 cups flour; add 1/2 cup of that flour to the mashed potatoes and stir to try to incorporate.
- Again, from that 2 cups, sprinkle flour on a flat surface to keep the lefse dough from sticking to the counter; Put the chunk of mashed, floured potatoes down into the middle of the floured area; Knead it for about ten minutes, gradually incorporating another half cup of flour; After it has a whole cup of flour in it, it will feel much doughier and nothing like mashed potatoes anymore.
- Seperate dough into 8 equal pieces, and roll each piece into a ball.
- Spread more flour out onto your surface - the best way to avoid sticking is to flip the dough over every time you take a roll on the rolling pin, sprinkle a little more flour under it, and then roll the other side.
- Always keep your rolling pin well floured, too; You want really thin pieces here, absolutely no thicker than your average flour tortilla, otherwise they won't cook all the way through and will taste a little doughy - They should work out to be about nine inches diameter.
- Once you have all eight pieces rolled out, heat up your frying pan or griddle and grease it slightly only if it isn't non-stick; Flip one of the uncooked lefse into the pan and quickly unfold any creases that might have happened with the spatula; only turn lefse once, and do it when you see air bubbles forming under the lefse.
- It won't need to cook for as long on the other side, but bubbles will form again (harder to see this time, careful not to leave it on too long and burn it!) you can just pick it up with the spatula and check underneath.
- Serve warm sprinkled with icing sugar and cinnamon or with some jam.

Lefse is a traditional soft Norwegian flatbread made out of potatoes and cooked on a griddle. I like it with butter and cinnamon-sugar, or use it to roll up lutefisk and mashed potatoes in. My grandfather emigrated here from Norway when he was small, and I am enamored with all things Norwegian!
