Potato Dumplings

Recipe by Chef #439689
READY IN: 35mins




  • Peel 10-12 medium potatoes (about 7 cups).
  • In a large bowl, shred potatoes. I have a 7 cup food processor and it makes the job really quick. Otherwise, a hand grater is all you need.
  • In a separate small bowl -- mix the eggs and salt and pepper.
  • Pour the egg mixture over the shredded potatoes and using your hands, mix well.
  • Gradually add in the flour, again using your hands. This is very heavy and gooey and is usually too much work for your mixer or it's blades.
  • Fill a large pot 3/4 full with water and bring to a boil.
  • Using a generous amount of flour on your hands, scoop a handful of the potato mixture into your hands and form into a ball. Place each dumpling on a cookie sheet for an easy transfer to the boiling water. (Recipe makes 10-12 baseball sized dumplings.).
  • Once water reaches a rolling boil, gently add each dumpling and continue to boil until the dumplings float.
  • Remove the dumplings from the water using a slotted spoon or strainer spoon and place in serving dish. Best served hot with gravy or sauerkraut.
  • Dumplings also make one of the best leftover breakfast items ever! Chop into bite sized pieces and saute with butter and garlic salt to put a crowd pleasing twist on traditional hashbrowns!
