Lompe (Hot Dog in Potato Roll Dough

This is the Norwegian version of a hot dog. They wrap their boiled hot dog or sausage link up in a potato roll that has been cooked on a griddle.


  • 3 medium potatoes
  • 2 to 2 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 8 less-fat turkey hot dogs (or less-fat turkey sausage links)


  1. In a large saucepan, boil potatoes in their skins until tender (20-30 minutes). Cool the potatoes, then, using a plastic knife, remove their skins. Place the potatoes in a mixing bowl and with an electric mixer (or by hand with a potato masher), beat until creamy.
  2. With a wooden spoon and your hands, blend in the flour until the dough is stiff enough to roll out. Divide the dough into 8 pieces. Using a rolling pin, roll each piece into a thin, oval-shaped sheet about a 1/8-inch thick.
  3. In a medium saucepan, boil the hot dogs. When they are cooked throughout, lower the heat to simmer until the potato rolls are ready.
  4. Heat a large nonstick grill or skillet, and use it to cook the flat rolls a few at a time. While the undersides are cooking, use a pastry brush to brush the top sides with water. Once the bottoms are lightly browned, flip rolls over and lightly brown the other sides.
  5. Sprinkle each roll with water, and wrap around a boiled hot dog. Then wrap each in a paper towel so the roll softens around the hot dog. Serve immediately.
