Lefse is a Scandanavian flatbread made primarily in Norway. It is typically made from cooked and riced potatoes, although prior to the introduction of the potato to Europe it was based on flour. Adding milk or heavy cream, butter or oil, sugar and salt to the base creates a dough that is kneaded, then rolled flat into a roughly circular shape. This flatbread, similar in size and texture to a tortilla, is then grilled on a griddle or in a large, flat pan until lightly browned. The flatbread is often served after being buttered and sprinkled with sugar, then rolled up.
