Serves 4-6

  • 2 lbs raw potatoes, peeled
  • 3 cups flour
  • salt to taste
  • 1 or 2 eggs

Grate raw potatoes–drain and squeeze out excess water and starch.  Add salt, egg and flour.  If dough is too stiff, add a few drops of water.  In a pot of boiling, salted water, drop spoonful of mixture (using a wooden spoon) into boiling water and cook for about 20-25 minutes.  Make sure dumplings do not stick to the bottom of the pan.  Remove from water with a skimmer.

These were always served with the Thanksgiving turkey, along with turkey drippings and/or gravy.

Leftovers: Slice leftover dumplings into relatively flat pieces. Place butter or oil in a pan to heat, then add dumpling slices and cook until browned on both sides. Serve sprinkled with a bit of salt to taste.
