800g mashed potato
1 large egg, beaten
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 1/2 cups plain flour
Place mashed potato in a large bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and mix to form a smooth dough.
Heat water in a large saucepan. As it’s heating, prepare the dumplings. On a lightly floured surface roll portions of the dough into 1/2 inch thick cubes and repeat with the remaining dough.
Place dumplings into the boiling water and reduce the heat. Cook for about 3-5 minutes, then remove one to test if it’s cooked through. Transfer the cooked dumplings to a colander and drain.
* These are often served as an accompaniment to any roast with gravy or saut ed with onion and mushrooms.
