"Sinker" Dumplings

Lou Kostura


These were the standard when I was growing up. I made a little change from mom's original recipe, but I think it made the a little richer. We had these with Pork Roasts, in Paprikash, or kielbasa, my kielbasa and kraut recipe is also in my recipe box

How to Make "Sinker" Dumplings


  1. Mix together eggs, flour, salt, and sour cream. Please note that this is a VERY sticky dough. I mix by hand, and yes it is messy. ( Mom's original recipe called for 1/2 pint sour cream and 1/2 cup cold water, I changed it to eliminate water and added a full pint sour cream it makes a lot richer dumpling)
  2. drop by teaspoon into a pot of rapidly boiling water
  3. boil rapidly for 20 minutes
  4. strain and use in any dish you choose
