As a kid I remember my grandma making these for me. I made them but instead of topping I browned them with butter and served them with pork chops. 5 stars! These are exactly like the ones she used to make and my kids loved it as much as I did. Thank you I been searching for this recipe for ever! Its going into my keeper file!
My husband is from Poland so I decided to make this recipe for him. Absolutely fantastic! He said it reminded him of what his grandmother used to make. We made "cracklings" from bacon to place on top along with the onions. We also had some sour cream to go with it. Yummy and easy to make. Great recipe!
I previously tried another recipe that had milk as an ingredient. The dough was extremely sticky. This recipe does not include milk and the dough was light but not too stickyk. This recipe yielded the most tender dumplings. In addition to onion, I also included minced thick bacon that was partially cooked in the pan to fry them after they were boiled. My wife said that they were as good as her late mother's.
My grandmother made these from leftover mashed potatoes, and I'd like to try them. Can anyone estimate how much of the already mashed potatoes I should use? The instructions say five ( medium?) potatoes, boiled and mashed. About how many cups of potatoes did you end up with? I'm guessing 3ish? Hope someone who has made this can help.
I made these last night and they came out delicious. I boiled the kopytka, and then in a saute pan I combined butter, onion and polish kielbaki cut into small pieces. Server the onion & kielbaski over the kopytka and it was a delicious combo.
