Checked 'Make lefse from scratch' off my New Things list today!

If you're not Scandinavian (or from Minnesota) lefse is, well, basically a thin potato tortilla. 
Every Christmas, we cover them with butter and sugar, roll 'em up, and call them dessert.

Honestly, they're fussy and labor intensive but I'm so glad I got to do this with my mom, using my grandma's old recipe card. πŸ’“πŸŒ²

  • yesandyesblog@d.arcie.d uncanny, right?!
  • tinyscenicWow they sound incredible πŸ˜‹
  • lovevalgeislerLefse is a holiday staple in our house. Enjoy them and what a special memory to build with your momma.
  • meghancreativeCan I get the recipe? Those look soo good πŸ’–
  • yesandyesblog@meghancreative bring this to a boil: 3.5 cups water, 1 cup half and half, 6 tbsp butter, 2.5 tsp salt, 2 tsp sugar. Remove and add 4 cups potato buds. Refrigerate over night. Add 2 cups flour. Shape into golf ball size balls. Roll out on floured surface then cook in a hot, dry frying pan!
  • moonessNorweigan, right?
  • msrachelhillsLooks tasty!
  • yesandyesblog@msrachelhills *I* love them, but they might be one of those "had to grow up with it" foods πŸ˜‰
  • msrachelhills@yesandyesblog I imagine them as a delicious thin savoury bread. (Until you add the sugar, at least.) Like a fried tortilla.
  • kathryn.fayeYum!! Yay for checking things off a list, and these look *so* tasty. I just got this cardamom ghee and coconut blended spread that's ruling my world right now, and I think this could jusssst the thing to accompany it.
  • nothingrhymeswithcaitlinLefse is one of my faaaaavorite foods of ALL time!
  • shanonlanglieSeriously so good! It's not the holidays without lefse.

  • realxoxolibMy college boyfriend was from North Dakota and one Christmas his mom taught me how to make it. It's so delicious--especially warm from the griddle.
