1 cup cold mashed potatoes
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 egg
salt and pepper (to taste)


In a bowl, mix all the ingredients; until it forms a stiff dough. Roll out dough on a floured board (as thick or as thin as you like). Cut into about 2-inch squares. They're that simple.

To cook these dumplings you have a couple of choices:

1: Drop them into boiling salted water. Cover and simmer for about 10 minutes. Drain and serve with your favorite sauce as a main course.

2: Drop them into boiling stew or soup (approximately 2 quarts of stew or soup). Cover and simmer for 10 minutes. These are a great added bonus to any soup.

Day after Thanksgiving I always make these with leftover potatoes and put it in turkey soup made with leftovers (using the carcass for the rich broth).

At our house these are a regular. To add a little more flavor though we add dry onion soup mix to the potatoes.

I made the dough as instructed and it turned out well. But as it turns out, there are more options for cooking them. I cut them into 1" pieces, sort of gnocchi shaped, and sauteed them in a frying pan. Served them with sauteed kale, wild mushrooms and garlic. SUPER GOOD. I will surely make these often whenever I have leftover mashed potatoes.
