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 :-)

Fabulous what more can I say !!! Only one thing it calls for flour but does not tell you what to do with it. I added it in when I added the spices and eggs.

My first time making dumplings, and it was easy! I did find them a bit bland (well, they're mostly potatoes after all), so I'd probably double the amount of spices next time. As you said, nice change from normal potatoes.
