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!

How to Make Mom's Polish Potato Dumplings


  1. Fill a very large soup pot with water and bring to a boil. dice up bacon, fry for a few minutes then dice up onion n add to bacon. fry until bacon is close to crispy.
  2. Puree potatoes then put your potato puree in a large mixing bowl. Add salt, pepper, eggs and 3 cups flour. Once mixed keep adding flour until your mix is like a loose biscuit dough.
  3. Take a teaspoon and scoop a spoonful of your mix. Dip your spoon in your boiling water until your dumpling slides off your spoon. If your puree slides off your spoon and your spoon does not come out of the water clean than you need too keep adding more flour until your spoon comes out of the water with absolutely no puree mix left behind than your mix is ready and you can repeat approx. 15 times. Add bacon and onion to the soup pot. Stir making sure your dumplings don't clump and stick to the bottom. Repeat until mix is all gone.
  4. Let simmer for approx 45 min.
  5. ENJOY!!!!
