The wonderful world of Lefse
Lefse is a Norwegian flat bread made out of potatoes. Similar to a tortilla, lefse is rolled out thin and baked on a griddle. Traditionally lefse is eaten with butter or lutefisk. With the popularity of wraps, lefse makes wonderful wraps with meat, scrambled eggs, or peanut butter and jelly. What ever kind of sandwich you would like to make, try using lefse as your bread!

Process of making lefse
The process of lefse starts with the main ingredient, potatoes. Wienke's Market uses fresh russet potatoes. Each potato is peeled by hand, then boiled, and then riced through a meat grinder. Only flour and salt are added to the riced potatoes to form the dough. Special grooved rolling pins are used to stretch out the dough into a 14" diameter lefse. Each lefse is then baked on a hot dry griddle until it bubbles and shows the brown bake marks. Made with passion, Wienke's Market is in their third generation of lefse makers. Stop at Wienke's Market on Tuesday mornings from October thru April to watch the art of lefse being made.
