Recipe: Basic Potato Dumplings
Savour the taste of Potatoes with a hint of cheese in it.
8 md Potatoes
1 tb Salt
2 c All-Purpose Flour, Up To- 2-1/2 Cups
1 tb Vegetable Oil
1/4 c Butter
1/2 c Grated Parmesan Cheese
Puncture potatoes in several places with a fork. Bake 1 hour in a 350F oven or until tender. Remove and discard skins. Mash potatoes through a ricer or food mill into a large bowl, and let cool a little. Add egg yolk, salt, and 2 cups flour. Mix well. Knead dough on work surface or board into a ball. It should be soft and a little sticky. If it`s too sticky, add a little flour. Lightly flour surface and hands. Break dough into egg-size pieces. Roll until thickness of thumb. Cut roll into 1-inch pieces. Push each Gnocchi against the back of a fork to imprint a pattern. This helps them absorb more sauce (and makes them a little prettier). Arrange them on a floured tray.
Fill a large saucepan 2/3 full with salted water. Bring to a boil. Add oil and dumplings. Stir, to make sure they don`t stick t bottom. When they come to surface, let them cook 10-12 seconds more. Remove with a slotted spoon as they are done. They get soggy if overcooked (they absorb more moisture than regular pasta). Serve with butter and Parmesan cheese or your favorite sauce.
