READY IN: 32mins
Recipe by KateL

Entered for safe-keeping for ZWT. Posted by Cherihannah on, who claims the potato dumplings instead of egg noodles are the "Old Country" way and egg noodles are the (American) Pennsylvanian way. I am still in shock over 1 1/2 cups of butter (3 sticks)!

Ingredients Nutrition


  2. In a large bowl, add mashed potatoes, eggs and blend thoroughly.
  3. Add enough flour with a little salt to knead into a soft pliable dough that will not stick.
  4. Make into rolls and slice in about 1 inch pieces.
  5. Drop dumpling slices into boiling water and boil about 12 minutes. To test for doneness, break one open with fork after you take out of boiling water.
  6. Drain in small hole colander. (You can rinse if you prefer. I don't.).
  8. While boiling the dumplings, sautee (in large fry pan )butter, cabbage and onions until golden brown.
  9. Add drained dumplings to fry pan and fry a little longer. Mix it all well while frying but don't overdo so dumplings stay together.
