1First thing after you rice or finely mash your potatoes put them into the fridge. When the potatoes are cold, add the remaining ingredients. Mix in the order given above. Shape into small balls or drop by teaspoons full into a large pot of boiling water that has 1 teaspoon of salt added to it. Cover with a lid. When they come back to a boil stir to loosen them if some are stuck to the bottom. Replace lid and boil for 10 to 15 minutes. Test your dumplings by taking one out of water and cutting it in half. If the center is raw cook them a few minutes longer.
2Grandma traditionally served this with pork roast and sauerkraut. She also used pork chops, beef roast, beef tongue, roasted pig's ears, pig's feet, ox tail, etc. Grandma Helen's were and still are the best potato dumplings I have EVER tasted!
