With a few additional basic ingredients, my mom transforms potatoes into these delightful dumplings. This authentic German side dish is so hearty and comforting. We love the dumplings covered in sauerbraten gravy.

After our two children became adults and left home, I continued to cook meals as usual. Soon we became tired of having to eat the same leftovers several days in a row, so I sat down and came up with this pared-down recipe, which quickly became one of our favorites.

You're bound to have sweet potato success when you whip up this casserole recipe from our Test Kitchen. With its rich color, creamy texture and irresistible taste, it is sure to be a popular stop on your holiday buffet table.
I LIKE this potato recipe because it’s a make-ahead dish and when the company rings the bell, it can be placed in the oven. Of Swedish origin, it was first served to my husband and me when we visited our daughter in Michigan and this was part of her Easter meal. She had received it from a friend.
"MOM decided to devise her own recipe for scalloped potatoes, and she cooked up a winner with this one. There was never a morsel left in the serving dish! The flavor of mushrooms gives the potatoes a unique taste that's compatible with the Poor Man's Steak."
Meet the Cook: Potatoes are something I can eat anytime of day and almost any way. This recipe's one I came up with to go along with pigs in blankets several years ago.

I SERVE potatoes with just about every meal. Besides using this recipe as a side dish, I discovered I could serve it as a main dish for a lighter meal. It satisfies the appetite well, especially for us older folks.
A dear friend shared this recipe with me several years ago.
