“This is a traditional Norwegian recipe that would be made for Christmas and other holidays. my Great-Grandmother, Mina Taylor learned from her parents who brought it with them when they emigrated from Norway in the late 18 90's. They would spend hours making this dish with a lot of steps and some difficulty. My Grandma taught me this as an easier way and can be done in about an hour or so. If you don't have a stand mixer, you can stir the potatoes by hand, but it will take more work from you and will take a little bit longer to make. Enjoy!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel the potatoes. Using a cheese grater, grate the potatoes and place in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Using a KitchenAide or other stand mixer, Add the flour one cup at a time until the potatoes are not sticky and are able to handle. You may need to add more or less flour, depending on how sticky the potatoes may become.
  3. Form the potatoes and roll up into a ball about the size of a tennis ball. This should make about 6 balls.
  4. In a large pot, boil the potatoes in salted water for about 20 minutes or until soft when poked with a fork.
  5. Remove them from the water and allow to cool for about 10 minutes or so. Slice the potatoes into good bite-size pieces.
  6. Heat a large skillet and add the 3 tbsp of olive oil or butter and add the sliced potatoes and fry until golden brown and salt and pepper for taste.
  7. Add the canned milk and cook in the potatoes until the milk has evaporated into the potatoes. These go really well with a roast or a ham and add a vegetable and you have a delicious meal!
