Celery potato dumplings

steamed celery & potato, then boiled: http://www.yummly.com/recipe/external/Celery-root-potato-dumplings-filled-with-spring-onions-and-bacon-328748


  • 1 kg steamed potatoes
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • (something for the hearty for the filling - sundried tomatoes, almonds, pine nuts, herbs?)
  • Mash the potatoes. Put this on a breadboard and make a small pit in the middle.
  • Put eggs, flour and salt in the pit and work the potato dough fast together. Too much kneading will make the potato tough.
  • Make a savoury filling
  • Form the dough into a thick roll. Cut it in thick slices and put a pile of bacon mix in a pit in a slice, then put another slice on top of it, press the edges together and roll it into a ball.
  • Lower the balls into boiling salted water and boil them approx. 10-12 minutes or until they float to the surface. Pick them up with a perforated ladle and put them on a hot serving plate. Don’t boil too many at a time, they will then have some difficulty floating to the surface.
  • Serve hot with (smoked butter emulsion, steamed spinach puree, smoked sour cream)
