4 Baking Russet potatoes
1. Roast 2 of the potatoes, or microwave, and let sit for 10 min.
2. Rice the potatoes or mash in a bowl.
3. Peel and grate the potatoes with a medium shredder into a bowl with the mashed potatoes.
Add the eggs, flour, potato flakes salt, pepper, parsley and chives.
I divided the dough into 8 balls and then flattened, and added 3 croutons.
This depends on the size of your croutons.
Form the dough over the croutons and seal into a ball. Notice how nice and firm the dough
stays together. If it doesn't then add a bit more potato flakes.
SImmer the balls in boiling salted water for about 15 -20 minutes. Don't over boil or they
The combination of the raw and cooked potatoes makes a nice texture as well as unique flavor that you don't get with just cooked potatoes.
Here is what they look like on the inside. The croutons add texture but also hasten the cooking time. If your making lage dumplings, imagine how long they would take to cook all the way to the center.
Serve with a nice stew, soup or a roast with gravy.
Here I froze the leftovers. Wrap the dumplings in plastic wrap and place individual servings in bowls that you can lightly thaw to pop out of the glass dishes. then wrap and store in Freezer.
