Our Norwegian Potato Lefse Recipe
A great potato lefse recipe is where it all starts!
Evan developed our unique rolling process, which is different from most pressed lefse. “Granrud’s is lefse just like Grandma used to make”, is what we often hear.
Evan and Myrt’s homemade lefse efforts paid off!
Since 1977, Granrud’s Lefse is stronger than ever and lefse delivery is available to the entire USA.
Granrud’s Lefse History
Potato lefse was always a big part of Evan and Myrt Granrud’s life. They loved eating and making homemade lefse.
In 1977 they had this BIG idea to make lefse for everyone to enjoy. The wheels started turning, the pieces started to fall together and after many long hours spent designing the rolling machines, tube stuffers, frying grills, cooling conveyor and perfecting their potato lefse recipe…
The perfect lefse recipe.
Finally, after decades of devoting their lives to making the perfect lefses, Evan and Myrt decided it was time to retire. In 1995, the Granrud’s decided to sell their beloved lefse business. Norther Electric Cooperative of Opheim purchased Granrud’s.
In 1998 Granrud’s Lefse was honored to be named the “Official Lefse of the Høstfest” held in Minot, North Dakota every October. It is North America’s largest Scandinavian Festival.
Later, in September 2005, former managers Alice Redfield and Twyla Anderson became the new owners of Granrud’s Lefse.
Unfortunately, we lost Evan Granrud in 2014 and Myrt in January 2015. Employees past, present and the community miss them dearly.
Soon after the 2018 season, Granrud’s Lefse was purchased by Scott and Libi Susag of Scobey, Mt. The company made its move from Opheim to nearby Scobey, just 60 miles East in June of 2018. The Susag’s are proud to carry on the original lefse traditions that all started with the Granrud’s original lefse recipe.
Moreover, it is an additional honor to have a brick-and-mortar location in Daniels County.
Our Lefse Making Team
During the first season of operations in the new Scobey location, the Granrud’s workforce had a rotation of 22 employees for the season. Operations require a minimum of 10 employees on the floor.
Lastly, the Susag’s offer the community part-time flexible jobs. Gratefully, many workers are able to join our team and keep the tradition of top quality Lefse alive for years to come!
