Lefse

This Norwegian flatbread uses potato as an essential ingredient, which gives it a unique texture. Potato makes softer, wetter dough and reduces the amount of flour needed in the mix. Lefse recipes also usually use cream or milk, resulting in a richer combination than you'll find in unleavened breads that stick with flour and water. Lefse can be prepared in thick as well as thin versions. Both make great roll-ups for breakfast or lunch and work well with sweet or savory ingredients, too.

A favorite in areas like Minnesota that have an underlying Scandinavian vibe, lefse is a popular holiday treat that's tasty and easy to make.
