This is going to sound silly, but I got this recipe on the back of a pkg. for plastic cooking spoons. Good Cook brand.


  1. Grate selected number of raw, peeled potatoes. Add dash of salt and flour to make a heavy dough mixture. Mix with hands.
  2. Boil kettle of water. Drop dough with teaspoon (3/4 tsp.) into boiling water. Cook until done. Drain.
  3. Fry onion and bits of ham in a little butter and pour over Kluskies in serving dish. Serve.

I have been looking for this recipe for ages, a friend makes this but uses diced and fried bacon,(instead of ham) adds a jar of sauerkraut at the last and heats that all and serves over the top of the dumplings. It is out of this world.

How awful, that someone would give one star, when they were the ones to ruin the recipe in the first place! After adding a ton of flour, no wonder they were cakey!! These are delicious. I generally use bacon in place of the ham and about 1/2- 3/4C flour.

Kluskies are what God intended potatoes to be used for. My family ate these at almost every meal and loved them. Their best served with a pork roast or a German sausage. Accompanied with apple sauce or a pork gravy they are to die for. My brother passed away two months ago in a hospice. He knew that he didn't have much time left when his daughter asked if he wanted anything special for dinner. This was the night before he died and he knew he was dying. He asked his daughter to make some kluskies and pork roast. That was the last meal he ate as the next day, because he stopped taking his meds, he went down hill and passed away at 9PM. The family all love kluskies and now we say they are "to die for".
