  • 200 g Grated potatoes [that have
  • -previously been boiled
  • In their jackets, then let

This refers to dumplings made from boiled potatoes which is the traditional
Swabian method. Dumplings made from raw potatoes originated in Bavaria and
reached Swabian kitchens relatively late.

Beat the butter and egg until fluffy. Add the cold, grated, boiled
potatoes, bread crumbs, salt, and pepper, and knead well. Depending on how
watery the potatoes are, flour may be substituted for the bread crumbs in
order to get a dough that is neither too firm not to pasty.

Form dumplings, and cook in barely simmering salted water for 15 minutes.

Serve immediately, while still piping hot.

These dumplings are also very popular as a main dish, with brown gravy.

Serves 4.
