These little dumplings are really good with a roast or in soup.Make them twice the size and serve them instead of potatoes. When I do this I like to either brown them with a bit of butter or put a little sauce over them and bake them for 30 minutes at 325f - the larger dumplings take 20 minutes apprx to cook in the boiling salted water, cook them over medium heat. Try adding Garlic, chili flakes or other herbs to the dumplings for an entirely differect flavor
