Potato Dumplings

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by mainecooncat

This recipe is from a cooking class I once took. They make a nice change from the usual potato accompaniments. Nice with a beef or pork roast. Don't let the spices turn you away. They're just what the dumplings need.

I think there's a knack to making these; and I don't have it :-) A bit of a sticky experience, but I suspect that was because I didn't allow enough cooling time at stage 2. Still the spices add a very nice twist and the lovely onion crumb topping helped hide even the worst of the very dodgey shaped dumplings :-)
