Lefse Or Flat Potato BreadFrom lor 8 years ago
How to make it
- Peel and boil the potatoes.
- Do not overboil.
- Mash or rice the potatoes and add the salt, butter and milk while still hot.
- Allow to cool and add enough flour so they are easy to roll out.
- Use a well-floured counter top, board or pastry cloth and roll out a large spoonful of the dough as thin as possible - thinner than pie crust.
- Cut into a 6 or 8 inch circle.
- You could use a sharp-edged saucepan lid as a cookie cutter.
- Fry on a medium/warm ungreased griddle.
- Only fry until lightly browned on both sides.
- Keep Lefse bread soft between several slightly dampened towels until ready to serve.
- These can also be eaten dry and crisp, but most of us prefer them soft and spread with butter and honey, preserves or brown / white sugar.
- If you wish to spread something on them, then they are rolled or folded to serve.
- If you serve them with a meal, butter is usually the choice.
- Serves 12 - 14 depending on the size you make.
