Grandma's Potato Dumplings Recipe
Don’t be surprised if you make too many mashed potatoes on purpose. Day-old rolls and leftover spuds are scrumptious the second time around, turned into buttery potato dumplings.Wendy Stenman
- 2 day-old hard rolls
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 teaspoons canola oil
- 1/2 cup leftover mashed potatoes
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- Dash ground nutmeg
- 1 to 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup butter, cubed
- Tear rolls into 1/2-in. pieces; place in a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Drizzle with water and squeeze dry.
- In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Add bread; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until lightly toasted.
- In a small bowl, combine the potatoes, egg, nutmeg and bread. Add enough flour to achieve desired consistency to shape into balls. With floured hands, shape mixture into 3-in. balls.
- Fill a Dutch oven two-thirds full with water; bring to a boil. Carefully add dumplings. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 8-10 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into a dumpling comes out clean. Meanwhile, in a heavy saucepan, heat butter over medium heat until golden brown. Serve dumplings warm with butter. Yield: 4 servings.
