Lefse Drive Thru

What’s more Minnesotan than a Lefse Drive Thru?

Lefse is a Scandinavian treat that is especially popular around the Christmas holidays. Lefse is a traditional soft Norwegian flatbread made with riced potatoes and includes butter, milk, cream and lard. It’s cooked on a large, flat griddle using special tools including a potato ricer, long wooden turning sticks and special rolling pins with deep grooves.

LefseMany Scandinavian-Americans eat lefse primarily around Thanksgiving and Christmas. Family members often gather to cook lefse as a group effort because the process is more enjoyable as a traditional holiday activity. This gathering also provides training to younger generations keeping the tradition alive.

According to Kim Englund, “The lefse drive thru will be open Saturdays 10-noon if anyone wants to stop by! Open today and every Saturday through December 23rd. 2 miles north of Evansville on County Road 1. In west central Minnesota.”
