Kartoffel Klöße Recipe

Kartoffel Klöße RecipeIngredients

6 to 8 (medium size) potatoes
1/4 cup flour
2 eggs
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
2 Tbsp. Margarine or butter
3 slices bread, cut into cubes


Cook potatoes in water until tender.

Cover and refrigerate for 12 to 24 hours.

Peel and finely chop cooked potatoes or mash thoroughly.

In a medium bowl, combine potatoes, flour, eggs, salt and nutmeg to form a firm but light paste. If the mixture is too moist add flour as needed. (This will keep the dumplings from falling apart during cooking)

Melt margarine in a large skillet.

Add bread cubes and saut? until golden brown.

Working with floured hands, form potato paste into a roll about 2 1/2 inches in diameter.

Cut the roll in 8 to 10 pieces.

Form pieces into dumplings putting a few sauteed bread cubes in the center of each dumpling.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.

Add dumplings one at a time and simmer for about 15 minutes.

Dumplings are done when floating on top.

Remove dumplings with a slotted spoon drain well.
