DIRECTIONS

  • Peel and boil potatoes until done.
  • Drain potatoes and mash.
  • Do not add butter or milk.
  • Cool potatoes in refrigerator until cold.
  • Mix in order given.
  • Mix well, and knead on a floured board until smooth.
  • Divide dough in half and make each half of dough into a roll about 3 inches in diameter and about 12 inches long.
  • Cut into dumplings about 2 inches long with a sharp knife that has been dipped in flour.
  • While you are cutting the dumplings, bring a large stockpot about 2/3 full of water with 1 teaspoon of salt added to water to a boil.
  • Once the water is boiling, add half of the dumplings to the water and stir so they don't stick to the bottom.
  • Boil for 15 minutes.
  • Remove from water with slotted spoon to drain.
  • Place dumplings in roaster sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Cover and keep warm in oven set to low.
  • Boil the rest of the dumplings, remove from water and add to roaster.

  • These are wonderful eaten with butter or sauerkraut or gravy.
  • I use all of my leftover mashed potatoes for this recipe.
  • To freeze:.
  • Place leftover dumplings on waxed paper lined baking sheets and freeze until solid.
  • Remove from baking sheet and place in ziplock freezer bags to store in freezer.
  • Will keep for 6 months in freezer.
