"Roll the balls thin enough so you can see the writing underneath!" says the Lefse Nazi
Carefully transport the lefse to the grill. Sometimes it sticks
to the board and tears... and we don't' like our lefse holey!

Let it cook on the grill for a minute on each side till you see spots.
Butter and Cinnamon sugar are a must.
Roll it up and eat it!

(With a strong ND accent) Up here in Nort Dakota we make lots a lefse for da holidays, ya! (End strong ND accent) I have lots of memories making lefse with my mom (the 'Lefse Nazi')and sister. Serve with butter and cinnamon-sugar mixture and embrace Norwegian heritage.
