Bacon Fried Dumplings

9 posts in this topic

We had German potato dumplings as one of our sides for Thanksgiving, one of our favorite sides, especially for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter.  If you love fried potato's you will love fried dumplings especially fried in bacon.  Here are some pics:  good luck.

Cut the dumplings into slices.  They firm up more after a day in the fridge.

I will be making these next weekend for my sister who hasn't had them in over ten years. My grandmother would make the dumplings by tearing a loaf of bread into pieces & mixing in grated potatoes & cream of wheat, form into balls and boil. The rest of the meal consisted of a pork roast with gravy (gravy over the dumplings) and a sweet & sour cabbage. I will have to try it your way for breakfast, I just put everything in a skillet & fry it all together for brunch the next day

I can remember these since I was a kid in Germany.  We boil potatoes with the skin on until tender.  Drain the water and let the taters cool.  Then we peel the taters and run them through a riser.  Depending on the amount of the potatoes we put a egg or two on the taters, some salt and flour.  The key is the amount of flour when you mix everything and start forming the texture.  That is the key.  Right amount of flour until you can form the mix into a roll and start cutting small pieces off the roll.  

Then you get some water boiling in a large pot.  Put some salt in there.  Once boiling cut it down to a simmer and start dropping the dumplings in there.  Not too many at a time.  I go maybe 8 or so.  They will drop to the bottom and when they all rise to the top wait a couple of more minutes and start taking them out.  I will be making them again soon for Christmas and will get a better recipe to follow with pics.  That would be more helpful.  The leftover dumplings we keep overnight in the fridge for breakfast the next day.  good luck.

I think they are somewhat like those Del but unique in the way they are made.  I haven't put a recipe on my page for this yet because I have never measured anything used for these dumplings except for the amount of eggs.  So the next time I make these I will measure everything and post it with pics and step by steps.  These dumplings have been a must for us as long as I can remember.  good luck.

The recipe sounded just like gnocchi.  That's why I asked. 

Amendment:   Gnocchi don't have eggs in them, I just looked at a recipe.  Just potatoes,and flour.  So that is a difference there.

I have had them both Del and there is a difference in texture for one thing.  Perhapst  if I ate some homemade spaetzle or gnocchi it may be different but any time something is made by some company it's just not the same.  They seem to cut corners but they are convenient at times.  Homemade dumplings do take some prep work and time.  good luck.

    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!
    • Just random ones I like. 1) Grand Marais fall. 2) HSO member Laker fishing. 3) Door County Wis.
    •   Yep and the Hawks won again!
    • Choosing 3 "best photos" is tough, but here are 3 of my favorites right now.  Cottonwood vs. Lightning Morel cluster  Pup in the snow
    • Missed the game but I guess I am glad I did. 9 games to go, still time to right the ship but at this pace the blues are going to pass us up.
    • Waiting for the new H'birds I ordered.  Hope it shows soon.  I be using the LCX as long as I have to.  del,  yes it is 10 inch screen
