I made Lefse

 I have been intending to make homemade lefse for about 15 years.  I have no idea why it happened tonight but glad it did.  I used to think you needed a special lefse grill, turning stick with little red Swedish style horses painted on it and a recipe to make it.   In reality all you really need to make lefse is left over mashed potatoes and flour to make a dough.

 I love Yukon gold potatoes for most potato needs.

 I had no clue how much flour to knead in so I just used enough to make the dough not too sticky to roll out.
A hot dry cast iron gill did help to get the right look.
I have never had lefse still hot from the grill.  mmmmm
 Since you are rolling it out thin and adding some flour it took very little mashed potatoes to make a bunch of lefse.
