Easy and delicious. I would definitely attempt to make my dumplings smaller next time as these babies are HEAVY. Sauteed them with veggie butter and caramelized onions. YUM!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel raw potatoes and grate finely.
  2. Put potatoes in a bowl and press down on them while tipping bowl to pour off as much liquid as possible.
  3. Stir in salt.
  4. Add as much flour as needed to make a firm dough.
  5. Have a pot of boiling water ready and drop in portions of dough with a tablespoon.
  6. Boil gently, uncovered, until dumplings float.
  7. Serve with onions which have been sauteed in butter until they are caramelized, poured over top of dumplings; or also good with sauerkraut.
  8. You can also add some grated onion to the dumpling dough if you like (about a tablespoon).
  9. Leftovers are good sliced and fried in butter.
