Mary. If you printed out my mother-in-law's directions for preparing the
basic grated potato you are half way there to Bulviniai Cepelinai Kukuliai,
or as we say Klatskas. This recipe comes from the Nationality Rooms
Cookbook, U of Pittsburgh. The potato mixture : Grate potatoes into cheese
cloth (the cotton flour bag works better) and squeeze until almost dry,
reserve liquid. starch will settle out. Add egg, flour and some of the
starch to potatoes and mix well. Form into 8 round balls and set aside. Mix
meat with onion and egg and form into 8 balls. Flatten the potato balls and
place meat in center and form the dough around the meat into the shape of
zeppelins. Boil in a large kettle of 4-6qts salted water for 30 minutes.
Caution: For 40 years, mine fell apart, because I couldn't use flour My
husband said his mother never used it. So don't be surprised if they don't
hold together! I also prefer to cook my meat mixture first! Sauce: Chop
bacon and fry, drain and saute onions. Add sour cream, heat and serve over
the zeppelins. I have not used the starch, I have heard of farina or cream
of wheat substituted for flour. A tremendous relief to be able to serve
these after years of failure. Hope your husband will be surprised. He
should like the Kuglis too, on the original bulletin. That is much easier.
