Lefse (using Hungry Jack Potatoes)
Our family eats this every holiday and sometimes for birthdays. People eat it with butter and sugar, butter, jams and jellies,and peanut butter.
Traditionally, you spread it with butter (and sprinkle with sugar - optional), then you roll it on an angle forming it into a huge cigar shape.
It is eaten as a treat... or as a bread to dip into soups and stews.
In the background is a lefse rolling pin (it has grooves).
