How to make it

  • Cut up bacon in bite size pieces and fry with chopped onion .
  • Meanwhile, put on large pot of water to boil.
  • Peel potatoes, cut and grind up in a blender (If the mixture is too dry
  • to blend, add the egg).
  • In a large bowl, gradually mix flour with potato mush until loose
  • batter is formed.
  • Put a large scoop of the batter on a flat surface (I use the bottom of
  • a springform pan).
  • Holding the flat surface in one hand, use a fork with the other,
  • pushing finger-size dumplings in the boiling water (They will rise as
  • they cook).
  • Gently stir, so they don't stick.
  • After the dumplings are all cooked, drain them in a large colander and put them in a large serving bowl.
  • Drain sauerkraut in colander, under cold water, squeezing out excess.
  • Add sauerkraut, cooked bacon and onion to dumplings.
  • Mix gently.
  • Salt and pepper to taste.
  • (An alternate version is with the dumplings mixed with drained cottage cheese and melted butter. Very yummy too!).

    Are the potatoes raw or cooked (boiled?) when blenderizing? Also, pureeing potatoes in a blender/food processor makes the potatoes gluey, not mashed, fluffy. Does this recipe need them to be gluey? ~ Thanks in advance for answering.
