And now for the delayed post Norwegian Potato Flatbread! A deliciously potatoey side. This flatbread is a pleasant change from the usual french fries, potato pancakes, or mashed potatoes with out diverging to much from that age old combo of meat and potatoes.
I first found this recipe two years ago when scouring the internet for easy gluten free recipes. Although the traditional flatbread does incorporate all-purpose flour I've been making it GF with great results every time. I can safely say that this recipe is 99.9% fail proof as every time I've made them I've done it using different flour(s) and it's always turned out satisfying!
You can make these just plain potato (without spinach), with tomato and/or spinach by them pureed to your mashed potatoes. Just keep in mind you will have to add more flour.
450g mashed potatoes (approxiamately 2 packed cup), cold
1-2 tbsp. pureed spinach
95g butter (approx. 7 tbsp)
>50g potato flour (approx. 1/4 cup) + more for dusting
>120g GF Flour (1 cup), any kind of flour(s) will do
pinch of salt
If your butter is room temp then stir into cold mashed potatoes. If your butter is cold then using a pastry knife, potato masher, or two knives cut butter into mashed potatoes until very fine. Fold in flours and salt. If the dough is sticky than incorporate more flour until it is about the consistency of a soft biscuit dough. Divide dough into 8 equal balls (approx. 100g each). Wrap and refrigerate dough balls.
Preheat a frying pan (no oil) on medium high heat.
Lightly dust surface with potato flour. Remove one ball and roll out until 1/8 inch thick. Every three rolls turn/flip dough to be sure it doesn't stick to the table.
Roll flatbread onto your rolling pin and transfer onto the hot dry frying pan. Cook 1-2 minutes per side. While the first one cooks begin rolling out the second one.

I'm sorry I forgot to take a picture of the finished potato flatbread before I cut them up! Below are some pictures of plate presentation I was playing with using the potato spinach flatbread.
