Description

This is a great German recipe for potato dumplings. It makes a excellent side dish.

Ingredients
  • 9 medium potatoes, peeled
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ⅔ cup bread crumbs
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • ¼ cup dry bread crumbs
Directions
  1. 1. Place the potatoes in a large pot with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook until the potatoes are soft, about 20 minutes. Drain water, and place potatoes into a large bowl. Mash potatoes, leaving them slightly lumpy (just like making mashed potatoes). Mix in the salt, eggs, flour, 2/3 cup of bread crumbs, and nutmeg. Roll into walnut sized balls. If the dough is too sticky, you may want to mix in more flour or bread crumbs.
  2. 2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Gently drop the dumplings into the water. When they come up to the surface, allow them to boil uncovered for 3 minutes. Remove the dumplings with a slotted spoon, and keep warm.
  3. 3. While you are waiting for the water to boil, melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add onions and 1/4 cup of bread crumbs. Cook, stirring constantly, until the onions are tender, and the sauce has thickened some. Pour sauce over the dumplings before serving.
