    LDSMom128's Note:

    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.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 4 cups potato flakes
    • 4 tablespoons sugar
    • 3 cups water
    • 2 1/2 cups milk
    • 1 1/2 cups butter
    • 3 teaspoons salt
    • 2 -3 cups flour (enough to make a rolling dough)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      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.
    2. 2
      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.
    3. 3
      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.
    4. 4
      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.
