Grandma Vanicek's Czechoslovakian Potato Dumplings

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Side Dishes, Vegetables

 Ingredients List

  • 6 md Potatoes
  • 1 Egg yolk
  • 1 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1/2 All-purpose flour


These are *not* fluffy dumplings as in chicken and dumplings. They are a
"sturdy" potato dumpling served as a side dish to meat, and usually with a
sweet sauerkraut/carraway/honey dish as the vegetable.

Boil peeled potatoes in small quantity of water. Drain potatoes
thoroughly. Rice potatoes through hand held masher/ricer. Let potatoes
cool. On floured board, gradually add flour working mixture into dough
with hands. Shape potato mixture into a long roll and cut into 10 slices.
Drop dumplings into boiling water and boil gently about 5 minutes.

Drain dumplings on paper towel. The dumplings are fully cooked after the
boiling process, but traditionally, Czechoslovakians then melt butter in a
heavy frying pan, and fry the dumplings until they are lightly browned on
all sides.

I usually put them on top of the roast when they are done... (Lin's note)
