“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!”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 -4 potatoes
  • 34 cup milk
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups flour, plus extra
  • flour, for kneading (I like to put about a cup or so in a small bowl for easy-shmeezy use)


  1. peel, wash, and dry the potatoes.
  2. grate them using a hand grater or a food processor.
  3. add the milk, salt, flour and mix well.
  4. cover with a damp towel and let sit overnight.
  5. the next day: on a flour covered board, roll out dough very thin.
  6. Cut it into 6" round circles.
  7. transfer to heated non-stick griddle or skillet one at a time and lightly cook on each side until it gets little brown spots.
  8. wrap in warm towel until ready to serve.
