1/1 Photo of German Potato Dumplings
Given to me by a German co-worker some time ago, it is actually not hard to make and makes a great dumpling! Prep time doesn't include boiling the potatoes.

- 4Using floured hands, shape the potato mixture into 10 balls; insert a crouton into the center of each ball.
