I can still smell these dumplings cooking in my Grandma’s kitchen.

We come from a German background, so many of the meals I remember my Grandma making included meat and potatoes. True German staple foods. One of my favorite meals was her homemade dumplings. She always made them when she had leftover mashed potatoes or when I begged her to make them!

I remember how we would get covered in flour when she allowed me to help. Sometimes I would even get to drop them into the boiling water, if I was really careful. I miss those days in the kitchen with my Grandma! But I am grateful that I learned from her so I can carry on these traditions in my own kitchen with my kids!

When my kids were old enough to help in the kitchen we decided that dumplings would be a great meal for them to help make. After all, it’s kind of like playing with playdough!

Of course, I changed my Grandma’s recipe a bit to be grain free German potato dumplings. But it’s still true to her traditional German recipe. It’s up to you to decide how to serve them. Our family favorite toppings are homemade gravy and sweet butter sauce. You can also add them to soups.

Ingredients

  • 6 medium organic russet potatoes
  • 3/4 cup Otto's Cassava Flour
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 3 pastured eggs

Instructions

  • Peel and boil potatoes, allow them to cool.

  • Then mash them, grate them or rice them.

  • Add the eggs, flour and salt.

  • Mix well with your hands.
  • Form into dumplings with your hands.

  • Bring a medium pot of water to a boil.
  • Drop the dumplings into the water, one at a time (careful not to splash yourself with boiling water!).

  • Gently boil them for about 10 minutes.
  • You will know they are done when they are all floating in the water.

  • Using a slotted spoon, scoop the dumplings out of the water.

  • Put them into a serving bowl with a lid to keep them warm.

  • Serve with gravy or butter.

  • They can also be used as dumplings in soups.
  • I even put them into vacuum bags and freeze them for future batches of soup! The easiest way to do this is with a food vacuum sealer (see below).
