Pa Dutch Sauerkraut Dumplings

READY IN: 12mins
Recipe by drhousespcatcher

Light Fluffy dumpling that looks like a snow ball. Those southern thingies are pot pie noodles any good Dutchman could tell you that. This can be used for Sauerkraut dishes such as pork or hot dogs and sauerkraut or in our version of Chicken and dumplings, Ham and dumplings, Beef and.. you get the picture.. any meat stew.

They are delicious! I grew up with them being a monthly menu item. They are called "knepp" in southeastern PA.... I never had them with schnitz but love them floating on a kettle of sauerkraut!

  1. Make into a paste. Drop into boiling kraut.
  2. If your rise is not pleasing, put in more baking powder.

  4. Once it is the right consistency to drop and you do, close the pan and do NOT, I repeat, Do NOT look at the dumplings until done.
