Ingredients for making Potato Dumplings Recipe

  • 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 for making Potato Dumplings Recipe

  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.
  2. Drain water, and place potatoes into a large bowl. Mash potatoes, leaving them slightly lumpy (just like making mashed potatoes).
  3. 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.
  4. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Gently drop the dumplings into the water.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Cook, stirring constantly, until the onions are tender, and the sauce has thickened some. Pour sauce over the dumplings before serving.
