Sweet Potato German Dumplings | Real Food RN

Growing up, my grandma used to make dumplings as a special treat. Her old German recipe, she always said they were the best with day old potatoes. Every time I have sweet potatoes left over I wonder if they would make good dumplings. So I finally took the plunge and made some. I had to make them gluten free of course. I am so happy I did! These have quickly become a staple in our rotation. The are so versatile, you can eat them with many different sauces or use them in soup! My Grandma would be proud that I have re-created her classic dumplings and made them healthier sweet potato german dumplings! Miss you Grannie XOXO

  • Serve right away, or cover to keep them warm
  • Top with butter or gravy and fresh herbs
  • These can also be used as dumplings in soups. I even freeze them in an airtight bag and use them in soups later on! I use THIS to make them airtight
