Grandma's Homemade Potato Noodles
1 1/2 cups mashed potatoes, cold
1 egg
1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
Dash of nutmeg
Pinch of salt
1-1 1/4 cups flour
4 tablespoons butter, divided
1/2 cup breadcrumbs, dry, divided
Salt to taste
Garlic powder, to taste
Parsley, to taste

In medium bowl, beat together mashed potatoes, egg, cream of tartar, nutmeg and salt until smooth. Gradually add flour, blending well until dough is stiff, yet somewhat sticky. On floured board, using about 1 1/2 tablespoons dough, roll into finger-shaped noodles; set on tray in one layer. In large saucepan, bring salted water to boil. Pour in half the noodles and boil until they float to top. Reduce heat to medium, simmer 3 minutes. Drain, rinse and repeat with other half.

Heat skillet over medium heat; add 2 tablespoons butter and 1/4 cup bread crumbs; stir to brown lightly. Season crumbs with dash salt, garlic powder and parsley. Add half the boiled noodles, tossing carefully to coat. Lower heat to warm, cover and cook 10 minutes. Repeat with other half.

4 cups potato flakes
4 tablespoons sugar
3 cups water
2 1⁄2 cups milk
1 1⁄2 cups butter
3 teaspoons salt
2 -3 cups flour (enough to make a rolling dough)
In a large saucepan or pot, bring the water to boil and add the milk, butter, sugar, and salt. When the milk has come to a boil, add the potato flakes and stir until smooth. Pour the potatoes into a large bowl and refrigerate.
When ready to make the lefse, take out 2 cups of potatoes at a time and add 1 to 1 1/2 cups of flour and stir until it becomes a workable dough. Flour a counter surface and roll the dough out as thin as possible. Cut individual slices with the a round cookie cutter, or the top of a medium sized glass.
Add about 1 tsp oil to a skillet pan and cook the lefse for about 3-5 minutes, or when brown blisters start to form on the top. Flip and cook for another 3-5 minutes.
Continue to cook the individual slices until the potato dough is gone. You may be able to cook several lefse at a time if you have a large enough skillet, if not cook one at a time. Any leftover cooked lefse may be refrigerate and used for about 3-5 more days.


For those who might wonder what a "lefse" is, it is a norwegian flat bread, like a tortilla, only made from potatoes...it is a popular breakfast treat and coffee break treat.  Just spread with butter, jam, or sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar, roll up, and eat.  They go fast, though!  Lutefisk takes some getting used to....but everybody likes lefse the first time they try it.  Noboy I know cuts them with a little cutter, either, just cook them like tortillas, nice and large....and try to stay ahead of the kitchen loafers waiting to gobble them up.
