As you recall here, lefsa with Ethne, and Ethn’e co-worker/friend Kari, during my YHL trip to Big City, MN was mostly an “epic fail”, however it did taste DELICIOUS! WARM…RIGHT OFF THE GRIDDLE.
It really is simple, but we missed AN IMPORTANT STEP…causing it to not roll well and as a result, not look pretty (but taste good).
Here’s what you need WOMS:
8 cups riced potatoes (peeled, boiled, and riced immediately and then cooled.
2 t salt
2 T sugar
10 2/3 T melted or soft butter
Cool in fridge overnight or until cool then add 2 cups flour. (This is the important step that we FAILED on. DO NOT ADD FLOUR AND PUT BACK IN THE FRIDGE. ONCE YOU ADD FLOUR, YOU NEED TO START ROLLING YOUR LEFSA!)
Mix everything very well and make into ¼ cup balls.
Grill at 475 degrees.
Serve with butter, butter sugar, and some people serve with jelly, as tacos, you name it! Enjoy my non-Norwegian friends and my Norwegian friends! And thank you to Cher for sharing this recipe! IT IS DIVINE!
PS: Ethne has most of the DISASTER PHOTOS! CHECK BACK ON WTF WEDNESDAY (WAY TOO FUNNY) TO SEE THE EPIC FAIL PHOTOS!
