- A little history of Lefse…is a traditional Norwegian flatbread made of potatoes. Commonly on holiday such as Thanksgiving and Christmas it is served.
- There are many types of lefse, but the main ingredients are almost always the same: sugar, flour, salt and milk, and cream or shortening.
- The dough is rolled out using a corrugated rolling pin to remove any air pockets. Then using a griddle to make.
At the Franklin Victorian Bed and Breakfast innkeeper Jennifer remembers the memories or her grandmother and father all Norwegian serving this during their visits. She keeps the tradition going with her family. Loves it the best when served warm and with butter.
Come and help out the area ladies and support them for the holidays.
