Mom's Polish Potato Dumplings

kristin miller


This recipe has been in my family for many many generations. it is one of those meals that brings your family running to your house for dinner with take home containers ready to be filled!!! I personally enjoy them as a soup but most of the elders in the family strain the dumplings throw em in a skillet with a few tablespoons of cottage cheese and of course salt n pepper to taste!!!!!!

We hope everyone enjoys this yummy cheap meal as much as we do!
