A must to go with Polish sausage and sauerkraut! I didn’t want to dig for my paper copy of the recipe, so I thought I’d search for it and I was shocked it wasn’t on here.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 6 cups leftover mashed potatoes
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup dry farina cereal (such as Cream of Wheat®)
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 2 teaspoons salt

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Mix potatoes, flour, cereal, eggs, egg yolks, and salt together in a bowl using your hands until the mixture comes together into a workable dough. Roll dough into 4- to 5-inch long logs with the diameter of a quarter.
  2. 2 Bring a large pot of water to a boil, add the dough logs, and cook until the dumplings float, about 15 minutes.

Also, Instead of rolling the mixture into logs, we roll them into 2" balls. When then potato dumplings come out of the boiling water, we cover them with sautéed - Read more ...
