This recipe has been enjoyed many times on cold Midwestern days. Although it comes from a frozen package of Chateau potato dumplings, it is still an excellent recipe. I would suggest going to a deli to get the 'hot' Hungarian paprika. In my mind, this is what makes or breaks the dish.

Chateau Potato Dumplings (Bramborovve Knedliki) are a commercially prepared dumpling located in the freezer case of upper Midwest (US) grocery stores. An easy substitution would be recipe #5424 or recipe #125887.

I used authentic Hungarian paprika, this recipe tastes great even with all 3 cups of chopped onions. I was a little skeptical at first. I didn't have the potato dumplings, but I'm sure that would've been an added treat.
