Ingredients:  
6 1/4 c. Hungary Jack Instant Potatoes
5 c. water
2 tsp. salt
1 T. sugar
1/2 c. cooking oil
1/2 c. evaporated milk
3 c. flour

Directions:
Directions:
Prepare the potatoes and water as if preparing mashed potatoes. While still hot, add the salt, sugar, oil and milk. Stir well and cool completely (overnight is best). Heat the Lefse grill to 475 F. While heating, add the 3 c.flour to the potato mixture and mix with your hands until completely mixed. Using a quarter cup measuring cup, divide the dough and flatten the balls in patties. Refrigerate half of the patties and begin rolling the others, one at a time, like very thin pie crust. Use plenty of flour on a pastry cloth (a mixture of white and wheat flour is best). Bake each sheet of Lefse individually on the Lefse grill until little brown spots appear. Turn and bake the other side. Cool.

Personal Notes:
Freezes beautifully. There are Lefse griddles and decorated Lefse turning sticks and Lefse rolling pins. Instead of using instant potatoes, I use mashed potatoes that measure 6 cups.
