This is my mom's family recipe. Handed down from mother to daughter, and now it's my turn. It's a very basic recipe, just potatoes, cabbage and butter. Careful not to burn the butter.
- 3 -4 potatoes, peeled and chopped
- 1 -2 egg
- 1 head cabbage, chopped
- 1 lb margarine (my grandmother uses Parkay)
- salt, to taste
- ground pepper, to taste
- Put a large pot of water on the stove to boil.
- Fry the cabbage in a large skillet, Season with salt and pepper, Fry until brown and cooked, Cover to keep warm.
- In a food processor, blend potatoes until liquid (You may have to do it in batches, it's ok if the potatoes turn brown).Add the eggs then.
- Add flour until stiff (so that a spoon will stand up when placed in it).
- Place a small amount of the potatoes on a plate and push spoonfulls off the edge of the plate into a pot of boiling water.
- Allow dumplings to boil until the float (about 10 min).
- Cook the margarine in a saucepan until dark brown (browning the butter) Careful not to burn it, you will smell it if you do.
- Mix cooked cabbage and dumplings together and drizzle with the brown butter.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for this recipe. My mother and grandmother would make this for us years ago, but we couldn't find a recipe like theirs. Brought back some great memories as well as tasting delicious. Easy to make.
This recipe is how I was taught by my Ukranian grandmother!! the only item left out was the onions. Fry 2 large onions with the cabbage. I use more onions because I love them! I use butter instead of margerine. You also will need alot of salt!! Add at the end 1 container of cottage cheese! Debbie
