DIRECTIONS

  • Cook your potatoes -- now I just did mine in the microwave. I poked them with the fork a couple of times and then baked 5 minutes on high - turned over and 5 minutes the other side. I let them cool, cut in half and scooped out the potato to a medium size bowl.
  • Now in that bowl, add the potatoes and mash just with a fork, then add the eggs, flour, cheese, salt pepper, scallions and herbs. Mix well.
  • Just dust your hands with flour to handle the dough because it will be a little sticky. Make golf ball size dumplings. I like to put mine on a cookie sheet and into the refrigerator for a hour or so to firm up before cooking them. Just lay them out on some foil and then cover with saran wrap or plastic wrap. These can easily be made a day in advance. Just as easy.
  • Now just in a large pot of water or large sauce pan, medium boil, boil your "balls" potatoes that is. I like to use a pot so I can see when they float to the surface. They should take about 5-10 minutes depending on the size. And don't try to cook a huge batch at once, Just like frying chicken or anything -- just a few at a time. Just set to the side.
  • Best part -- In the same pot that you just cooked the potato balls in, just pour out the water and add butter and the bread crumbs, letter the butter melt and mix with the bread crumbs. Then just roll the ball around it inches That's it. The butter and bread crumbs make such a great flavor to the potatoes.
  • This is a first class side dish worth every minute. They are just heavenly.
