Butternut Dumplings with Brown Butter and Sage--TNT

These are a lot of work but SO good!

Butternut Dumplings with Brown Butter and Sage

1 ˝ small butternut squash, halved and seeded
4 medium baking (russet) potatoes, pierced
1 egg
1 ˝ Tbsp kosher salt
1 pinch nutmeg
1 ˝ all-purpose flour, plus additional for dusting
Oil
1 bunch sage, leaves chiffonade
8 Tbsp unsalted butter
˝ c grated Parmesan

Preheat oven to 375F. On a sheet pan, place the squash flesh side down and roast until very tender (about 45 minutes). At the same time, bake potatoes directly on the rack of the oven for 1 hour.

Split the potatoes and allow to cool slightly, or until you can handle them. Don’t let them cool completely. Scoop the flesh of the potatoes and the squash into a bowl and mash with a hand masher.

Mix in the egg, salt, and nutmeg. Then add the flour and mix until a soft dough forms. Do not do this in a mixer, as it will overwork the dough. Add flour by the spoonful if it’s still too moist.


Turn out onto a floured board and divide into 8 portions. Roll out into ropes and cut into ˝” pieces. Line the pieces up on a floured sheet pan as you work. At this point you could freeze them on the pan until solid, then transfer to zip top bags and store in the freezer.

In a large pot of boiling salted water gently drop in the dumplings. Don’t overcrowd. As they begin to float, remove them with a slotted spoon and toss them into an ice bath.

Drain off the water and toss in a little olive oil. Store loosely in containers until ready to use.

To reheat, in a sauté pan over high heat add 1 Tbsp of soft butter. Cook until the butter begins to foam and turn brown. Add 2 Tbsp sage leaves and 1 c dumplings. Cook for an additional minute until the dumplings are heated through. Repeat until you have desired amount of servings. Plate and top with freshly grated Parmesan.

I think pork sounds like a good choice, jp. When I had them it's all I ate--just had a lot of them!

i haven't been so happy to see such a good recipe in i don't know how long!
i didn't get to make these the other day but went to the store tonite for the ingredients. i had my Brother (he's a D/C member, too, but he doesn't post) look up the recipe for me while i was at the store.
the guys would more than likely be so very happy if i cook these and some pork chops for them.

It's not stupid ... It would be silly though if you didn't ask all it is is fresh sage leaves, you roll a few of them up like a cigar, then slice to get it to look like thin ribbons of sage...then you saute them in butter and add the dumplings heat them through and plate adding some fresh grated parm at the end...If I didn't like sage, I would probably just leave them as they are and add the parm and some freshly cracked black pepper...I had some like this today when I was fixing them...YUMMY
