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)
