“My grandmother used to serve this with cheese as a pre-dinner snack while we waited for the turkey. She used a heavy cast iron griddle, lightly floured. I use a 1 1/2 inch wood dowel to roll out nice and thin.”

There are no potatoes. How can it be a true lefse recipe without the potatoes?

I have been looking for this recipe for a long time, my mother-in-law lost it over the years.My husband just loved it, said it tasted like his grandmothers, they called it flat bread though. Very simple to make.Although I cooked it at a higher temperature and it turned out fine.
