One Family’s Legacy Of Lefse

It’s a centuries-old holiday tradition that one Minnesota family has been doing it for about a decade. The Ovre family gets together every year to make dozens and dozens of lefse, a Norwegian flatbread made out of flour and cream, and cooked on a griddle. The family estimates they used 100 pounds of potatoes for their 700 rounds. Their system is so strong that two of the kids, Tom and Paula Ovre, teach lefse baking for community education programs.
