POTATO DUMPLINGS
Ingredients:
  • 6 potatoes, unpeeled
  • 1 cup flour, sifted
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 Tbs Salt
  • 4 tsp butter, melted
  • tsp pepper
  • 1 Tbs onion, chopped
  • Croutons
  • cup dry breadcrumbs
Instructions:

Boil potatoes with skin on. Refrigerate until ready to use. Peel boiled potatoes and press through a potato ricer. Combine potato, flour, egg, onion and seasonings into a dough.

Roll dough into balls the size of a golf ball. Press down to flatten, insert 2 or 3 croutons into the center and roll the dough around croutons to form a ball.
Bring a large amount of salted water to a boil. Slowly lower dumplings into boiling salted water and boil for 8-10 minutes. Remove from water using a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.

Combine butter and breadcrumbs and spread on plate. Roll dumplings in buttered breadcrumbs.

We no longer boil potatoes for dumplings. Seems they require much more flour when boiled. Bake them in their skins and as soon as you can handle them, peel and rice. IMO, much better results.

I'll have to try that. That's how I usually make both my mashed and sweet potatoes on Thanksgiving because the oven's going anyway.

BBC - Gardening - Gardening Guides - Techniques - Growing potatoes

From the BBC...

How to chit

  • Chitting simply means encouraging the seed potatoes to sprout before planting.
  • Start chitting from late January in warmer parts of the country or in February in cooler areas, about six weeks before you intend to plant out the potatoes.
  • Each seed potato has a more rounded, blunt end that has a number of 'eyes'.
  • Stand the tubers with the blunt end uppermost in trays or old egg boxes, with plenty of natural light.
  • The potatoes are ready to be planted out when the shoots are 1.5-2.5cm (0.5-1in) long.

My neighborhood is about 75% Latino. "Chit" has a whole 'nother meaning here!
