    French Tart's Note:

    These famous Norwegian Potato Pancakes are more like flatbreads; they are traditionally eaten with butter and cream as a dessert, or sprinkled with cinnamon sugar as an accompaniment to coffee. I think these would be wonderful eaten with fried bacon and mushrooms, for a delicious brunch and breakfast idea. The Norwegians will also eat these with local goat's cheese, snofrisk, or with dried/smoked reindeer meat.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 6-8

    Yield:

    Lefse

    Units: US | Metric

    • 500 g boiled potatoes, mashed
    • 100 g rye flour
    • 1 teaspoon sugar
    • 1 teaspoon salt

    1. 1
      Put the mashed potatoes into a large bowl and add the flour, sugar and salt - mix well.
    2. 2
      Add some water - bit by bit, kneading well so it makes a pliable dough.
    3. 3
      Take little balls from the dough - the size of a small egg and roll them out thinly on a well floured surface.
    4. 4
      Heat up a flat griddle, hotplate or skillet and cook the Lefse with a little fat until the dough bubbles.
    5. 5
      Turn them over and cook the other side.
    6. 6
      When the Lefse have been cooked - they should be smooth and soft.

      We REALLY liked these. We put a strawberry compote on top with sugar - very good! I have to share though... Tom says they taste like McDonald's hash browns and dipped some of them in ketchup :-) They were delish both ways (and he is right, they are good in ketchup too!). Made for ZWT3.
