Does anyone have a good Lefsa recipe?  Lately the stuff I've been buying in the store, hasn't been very good.  Lefsa is a Norwegian flat bread, made with potatoes.

I hope someone responds to this.  The lefsa I tried at Epcot had a 1/2 inch thick layer of cold butter on it so I could hardly taste it (come to think of it, I could barely swallow it).

When in doubt, sauerkraut.

There are actually a few different recipes here at my second- or third favorite cooking website (first is epicurious, and I was surprised they didn't have any there).

Thanks tracymarie, I added that to my favorites
Lutheranchick, I like mine lightly buttered. 1/2 in layer,  Is way too much.

I think that might be part of the reason my sister calls that place "Crapcot" Cheesy

The recipes are good, but probably not as good as the original recipes.

5 lbs potatoes, small container of cream, 1 lb butter, and a tub of shortening, container of flour, and a little bit of salt is all you need.

Don't know about other people, but I'm sick and tired of people saying their lefse is a traditional Norwegian dish and adding Sprite or 7up in it. That's just not tasty.

That's interesting, I've never heard of adding 7 up to it.  The lefsa the I've been buying in the store just isn't as good as what my ex's dear mother made.
I helped her make it a few times, was quite good at rolling it out and baking it.
But she passed away just a few months after Dickie & I were married, so I never got the recipe.  No condolences please, that was 35 years ago.

Lefse Recipe:

4 C riced potatoes
1/4 C butter or margarine
1/4 C shortning
1/2 C whipping cream
1 Tsp sugar
1 tsp salt (omit if you boil the potatoes in salt water)

1 1/2 C flour

Boil and rice the potatoes.  While they're still hot, add butter, shortning, cream, sugar and salt.  Mix well.  Cool overnight in the refrigerator, covered with a towel (do not use wax paper or saran wrap).

Before rolling, add 1 1/2 cups flour.  Do not add the flour to warm potatoes!

Roll the lefse thin on a floured pastry cloth with a grooved rolling pin.  Turn and roll several times, using a lefse stick to turn.  Bake on an electric grill at 400 degrees until brown bubbles form; turn to brown on both sides.

Place between damp dishtowels to keep moist until packaged.

Thanks koren, That sounds like a recipe that will taste like potato.
