Norwegian Flatbreads

Submitted by: KRAVMAGAGIRL

Introduction

It is impossible to find a more spartan cracker than Norwegian Flatbread. It can be made with only rye flour, salt, and water, but adding a pureed vegetable, such as potatoes, increases the nutritive value and adds subtle flavor. This flatbread is excellent with mild cheeses.

Ingredients

    • 2 sm Potatoes boiled or baked And pureed in the blender Or food processor (about
    • 1/2 cup)
    • 2 c Of rye flour
    • 1/4 ts Salt
    • 1/3 c Water or potato water

Directions

In a large bowl or in the food processor, blend the pureed potato,

flour, and salt together.



Add the water and blend well until the dough will hold together in a

cohesive ball. With a sharp knife, divide into 10 equal portions. Turn

these out, one at a time, onto a floured surface and roll into

circles. Roll as thin as possible, at most 1/8 inch, so each is

approximately 7 to 8 inches across. Prick all over with the tines of

a fork.



Lightly oil a griddle or large skillet and heat until it is very hot.

One by one, place the rolled circles onto the griddle and cook until

the bottoms begin to show light browning. Then turn and cook the

other side. Keep turning until the whole cracker is dry and crisp. Do

not allow the flatbread to get more than medium brown. Cool on a

rack. Yield: 10.



VARIATIONS: Substitute any pureed vegetable for potatoes. Flours

other than rye can also be used. Try wheat or barley. If the dough is

too sticky to roll, add a little more flour. Letting the dough rest

for an hour after mixing will also make it easier to roll.



Flatbread can also be cooked in the oven. Bake on an ungreased baking

sheet at 400~F. for 8 to 12 minutes, or until crisp, turning 2 or 3

times.
