    I got this recipe years ago from a coworker, who got it from her German grandmother. It's a tasty German, meatless dish.

      This was superyummy! I will definitely be making this over & over. Only thing I did differently was not mix the potatoes & dumplings together (I sliced my potatoes in rounds). So I did one layer of potatoes, top with half onions & cheese, dumplings on top of that, rest of the onions & cheese and then finishing with a layer of potatoes again on top. Sprinkled with a bit of cheese and then I put it in the oven for about 30 minutes.
