LEFSE is what we call this type of traditional Norwegian food. I was just using "google" and found so many links and even "You Tube" films about how to make them. I would recommend Googling "Lefse" if you are interested in finding out more.
I have not been brought up with a mother or grandmother who has taught me about traditional food, but luckily there are plenty of places to buy LEFSE.

I have just learned enough about the various types of lefse to be hungry. They even say that making them at home is at least as enjoyable as eating them.

Looks delicious. What do you eat them with?

They are served with coffee and other cakes, and very often at family gatherings.

My favorite, although we like to call it Tunnbröd on this side of the border. I always eat them with messmör.

They look good!! Better sneak some in before the New Year's diet begins.

I had Christmas lefse at my wife's parents' house and then again at my parents' house! I must say my parents' lefse was thinner and more delicious - c'est vrai! And Swedish meatballs . . . .

I've never made lefse myself (I'll have to google the recipes now), but I've been eating them for years. Butter and brown sugar...yum!!
