Rømmegrøt

Rømmegrøt by Microwave - Serves 16 (this is not actually rømme grøt because it does not use any sour ceream, but still very good)
1 cup butter
1 cup all-purpose flour
3 cups half & half
1 cup whole milk
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 tsp salt
Direction: Melt butter in large microwave-safe bowl.  Stir in flour with wire whisk.  Cook until mixture bubbles; cook 30 seconds longer. Heat half & half and milk together, slowly add to flour mixture.  Stir with wire whisk while mixing.  Return to microwave until mixture begins to boil, about 2 minutes. Remove from microwave; stir in sugar and salt. Microwave 30 seconds longer.  Add more hot milk if necessary to reach desired consistency.
Serve with melted butter, cinnamon, sugar, if desired.
This rommegrøt recipe was taken from the Global Gourmet, Concordia Language Villages, Moorehead, Minnesota. Recipe submitted by Amy Erickson, longtime Concordia College Food Service Manager.

LEFSE
so many inquiries for a super good lefse recipe, so here it is............

Ingredients
8 cups Russet potatoes, boiled and riced
1 cup whipping cream
2 tsp salt
3 tsp sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 cups flour

Directions - Cover and chill in refrigerator overnight.  Makes it easy to roll out.
Next day add flour and mix well.  Measure out about 1/4 cup of mix per lefse.  Form into balls and keep in refrigerator until ready to roll.
Roll on pastry cloth to about 10-12 inch in size, fry both sides on hot lefse grill at 450°.
Butter the lefse and sprinkle with a mix of cinnamon and sugar.  Enjoy!!
If you need a lefse grill, just do a search on Google.  I have the non-stick Teflon grill.





Where to find Scandinavian foods in Las Vegas:

IKEA
IKEA in Las Vegas - Address: 6500 IKEA Way, Las Vegas, NV 89148

Click here to visit IKEA


The international Market, just South on Decatur by Tropicana.  I just went there last week and found multer (cloud berries), Vestland Lefse, Daim sjokolade.  I am a happy camper!!!  Also bought gul ost, geit ost, sursild and blueberry and black currant juice.   Fiskeboller and knekkebrød.  You have to do some searching to find the Scandinavian foods, most are in the back just before the fresh vegetables but they really do have some goodies.
They will also order special items if you fill out a request.  The more people that go there and purchase Scandinavian food, the more they will get and keep re-stocking. So, if you want to be able to buy Scandinavian foods in Las Vegas, please go there.  It is an amazing store and great prices.

Linie Aquavit Total Wine & More now carry Linie Aquavit here in Las Vegas.  I know many people have asked where to find that.  Stop in and tell them how great this is and get some for that special occation.
