DIRECTIONS

  • Fill a large soup pot (not sauce pan, too small) about half full of water and bring to a boil.
  • Using just your hands, knead together equal amounts mashed potatoes and flour in a bowl until it forms a dough.
  • Form dough into baseball/tennis ball sized balls.
  • Carefully, so as not to splash, drop dumplings one at a time into boiling water. Do not over crowd pot. You only want a single layer of dumplings.
  • The dumplings will sink to the bottom.
  • Bring water back to a boil and then simmer.
  • When the dumplings begin to float they're done. Don't take them out of the water right away, let them float for about 5 minutes before removing them.
  • Remove finished dumplings from water with a slotted spoon and place in a bowl or on a serving plate.
  • Serve alongside any kind of roast and top with gravy or butter and salt and pepper. Yum!
  • Leftovers can be cut up into bite-sized pieces.
