We have this for a little change in side dishes. It also is a good recipe to make use of stale bread or rolls and left over potatoes. These are quick and easy to make. Really good with gravy from a roast or stew. Try them I'm sure you'll like them. My kids always make sure I don't have any left-overs.
- 2 buns (stale, dried out) or 1⁄2 French baguette (stale, dried out)
- 2 cups water
- 3 cups potatoes (cooked and riced or left over and grated)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 4 -5 tablespoons flour
- 4 -5 tablespoons cream of wheat or 4 -5 tablespoons cornmeal
- 1⁄2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 egg
- Soak buns in bowl of water for about 30 minutes.
- Meanwhile rice or grate potato using the fine grater into a medium bowl.
- Squeeze all the water out of the soaked rolls and add to the grated potato.
- Add the rest of the ingredients and using hands, mix together.
- If dough is really sticky add a little more flour.
- Wet your hands and form balls about 2 1/2 “ in diameter.
- Drop dumplings in a large pot of boiling water.
- Once dumplings have floated to the top of the water let cook another 10 minutes.
- Remove from the pot with slotted spoon.
- Added Note:.
- You might want to make extra.
- These freeze very well.
- Left overs are a great accompaniment to roast beef or pork ,just slice little less than 1/2 inch thick slices and brown in butter.
I find it difficult to rate this, as i totally messed up, so we ended up with flour dumplings.. We didn't have any buns, so i decided to use normal dry bread. I guess i didn't squeeze out enough water so i had to add a LOT of flour. Will try to make them again, following the recipe to a T. Made for ZWT4 for TTT
I made these for ZWT4 by team Chic Chefs I had never had anything like this before, but I will be making them again. DH also said that we need to have these again. I did not add the nutmeg as that is a spice that I am not fond of. Other than that I followed the recipe as written.
