Instructions
  1. Cook the potatoes in their skins the day before or early in the day. Cool slightly and peel. Rice the potatoes (or mash if you don't have a ricer). Let them become totally cold, cover, and refrigerate several hours or overnight.
  2. Make croutons by cutting bread into cubes.
  3. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the bread cubes and fry, stirring frequently, until nicely browned on all sides. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  4. Mix into potatoes, 1 cup cornstarch, eggs and salt to make a dough that holds together when formed into dumplings. If the mixture is too moist, add a bit more cornstarch.
  5. Form 12 - 14 dumplings, approximately 2 inches in diameter, adding a few croutons to the middle of each dumpling.
  6. Drop gently into pot of boiling, salted water. Simmer gently, uncovered, about 15 - 20 minutes.
  7. Remove with slotted spoon and serve immediately.
Recipe Notes

https://www.quick-german-recipes.com/german-potato-dumplings.html

  • To keep the dumplings from sticking to your hands when you are forming them, you can either wet your hands with water, or dust your hands with flour.¬†Either way works.
  • Test cook one dumpling to make sure it stays together, before you cook the rest. If it doesn't, you'll need to add a bit extra flour or liquid, depending on how sticky or dry your 'dough'
  • I don't really get the croutons in the center, but aside from that they were pretty good!¬† But I think next time we'll try something different in the center.
