Bavarian Potato Dumplings:

What's the big idea?

In certain parts of Germany, its is unthinkable to eat certain dishes with anything but dumplings! Although perhaps losing their popularity in some other countries, dumplings remain a firm favourite in Germany, and many different types are made. In Bavaria, for example, nobody would dream of serving Schweinsbraten (Roast Pork) without these dumplings and some Red Cabbage .

Shopping List

Here's the list of what you need:

  • 2 slices white bread, cut into 1cm cubes
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1¼kg potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • Salt
  • 100g cornflour
  • 2 egg yolks
  • Pinch of ground nutmeg
  • 3 tablespoons butter

What To Do

  • Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a frying pan and fry the bread cubes until golden brown
  • Leave to drain and cool on kitchen paper. Sprinkle with chopped parsley
  • Bring a pan of salted water to the boil and cook the potatoes until tender. Drain and allow to cool slightly
  • Add the cornflour, egg yolks, remaining 2 tablespoons of butter, salt and nutmeg to the potatoes and mash well to form a smooth "dough"
  • With damp hands, form 8 equal balls from the dough. Flatten them out, fill with the bread and parsley, then form into smooth round dumplings
  • Place the dumplings into a pan of salted, simmering water for about 20 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon
