Spinach Potato Dumplings Medely

Rose Mary Mogan


I made meat Loaf with Mashed Potatoes, & had some left over, so I decided to make Potato Dumplings with spinach, but add colorful sautéed Rainbow Peppers With onions & Bacon to them to not only add another vegetable but to also add more color, eye appeal & flavor to the dish.

They really turned out great. Great Flavor added color, & a creative way to use up the left over mashed potatoes. Dan really loved them & so did I.
This is a variation of my Potato Dumplings that's already posted, or the Spinach Potato Cakes, but made into dumplings, any way you look at it, they are tasty & delicious.

How to Make Spinach Potato Dumplings Medely


  1. Please Remember: FOR EACH ONE CUP OF MASHED POTATOES USE ONE CUP OF FLOUR PLUS 1 LARGE EGG. The bagged variety of Bacon bits from Sam's Club comes in handy to add extra flavor to a dish like this.
  2. Add the flour, drained & squeezed dry spinach to a large bowl, along with the spices, mashed potatoes and eggs, mix together to form a soft dough. Add additional flour as needed to bowl to roll into dumplings and place on a large platter. I PREFER TO MAKE ALL OF THE DUMPLINGS AT ONCE BEFORE DROPPING THEM INTO THE HOT WATER for more even cooking time.
  3. Fill a large pot with water and bring to boil. Drop dumplings into boiling water enough to cover bottom of pot. Do not over crowd bottom of pot.
  4. Allow to cook long enough to float to top. Then remove with slotted spoon on to a large platter. Repeat till all dumplings are cooked.
  5. Add butter and oil to a large skillet, I used a 16 inch skillet, heat over medium high heat, then add the chopped vegetables, and allow to cook for about 6-8 minutes, then add the dumplings into the skillet and allow to brown slightly if desired, stirring often to prevent sticking.
  6. During last 5 minutes or so of cooking add the real bacon bits if desired, and stir to mix, then serve on a large platter, with additional chopped chive and bacon bits if desired. Serve while still hot.
