      Norwegian Potato Lefse! I remember growing up and "helping" make (and devour) lefse with my best friend's family. It is to this day one of my favorite foods!

      Norwegian recipe: Lefse was something my relatives made on a regular basis. It is usually made with a lefse rolling pin, but a regular pin will do. The taste is wonderful - served warm is the best.....with anything you want on it......a little work, but well worth it!

    lefse recipe- nom!

    Norwegian Potato Lefse ... is a humble sort of flatbread, made as it is from leftover mashed potatoes. Work in a little flour, roll it out flat, and cook it on the stovetop for dinner! This makes a thin and soft flatbread that's more substantial than a crêpe but more delicate and chewy than a flour tortilla.

    Colcannon Puffs, FatFreeVegan (potatoes, kale, nutritional yeast, onion and garlic powder, thyme, soymilk, cornstarch) [I enjoyed, though I baked each serving in a ramekin rather than forming into balls. I used roasted cauliflower for half the potatoes and wasn't the wiser. Would be good app for a (St. Patrick's Day) party]
