Norwegian lomper with pickled red onions

If you travel to Norway some day, and  you are in the mood for sausage and bread, you can quickly find out that besides the classic sausage bread that we are used to here in Sweden, there is also something else called lompe. It is a soft, thin wrap bread, which most Norwegians just love and that of course can be bought  in all grocery stores there. But ... if you'd like to try making it at home,  it works just fine. Here's recipe for a version I do on potato and rye flour. To that, I usually have pickled red onions that are just soooooo good together with sausage.

Lompe :
1 kg potato
3 + 7 cups sifted rye flour
1 tsp sea salt
Here's how: Peel and boil the potatoes in a little salted water. Mash it into a mashed potato and let it cool . Mix in 3 cups of the flour along with the sea salt . Work it together to a smooth dough . Let rest for a couple of hours . You will notice that the dough has become softer now and mighty sticky to roll out . Add more flour until you get just the right consistency of dough to roll out small, thin pancakes. About 7 cups I usually need , but may vary. Roll out small thin pancakes and fry them in a dry pan , a couple of minutes on each side. Wipe the pan with kitchen paper in between each lompe so that all the flour residue is gone.

Pickled onions :
3 red onions
1 cup vinegar
2 cups sugar
4 cups water
Here's how: Peel and cut the onion into thin slices. Put it into a larger glass jar . Boil together water, vinegar and sugar and pour it over the onions . Close the jar with a lid and let stand for at least a few hours. It is best when it is allowed to stand overnight. Incredibly good for grilled sausages together with lompe .
