I have always loved dumplings! They are comfort food for me. Some might not like the slightly chewy taste, but me, I can’t get enough of it!
My kids are not huge fans; they would eat it, but they don’t prefer it. More for me, right?!
Anyhow, my hubby and I enjoyed them very much. I had leftovers and he even ate it for breakfast. Some foods are actually so ugly when you look at your plate. Then the taste surprises you big time, and I think that is the case with these kinds of European dumplings.
They don’t look appealing, but the taste is just phenomenal. Of course, you got to mix with some kind of sauce or just use herbs, garlic, and butter with perhaps freshly shaved Parmesan.
It does require a bit of hard work, and patience until they come together. With that being said, why not make something from scratch. Have fun in the kitchen and experiment with the new flavors.
Now, these could be turned into gnocchi with a just slightly push of the table fork tins onto the dumplings pieces, and I did that and they were great.
However, prior to freezing, I did not layer them nicely in the box. So, once I started to boil they turn into large dumplings, and I was fine as long as I have some hot dough to munch on!
In this post, I am including a few of the pics how I made them, and I hope that helps you in order to make these for yourself.
As for sauteing the dumplings after they are boiled, I used my favorite flavors, but you are more than welcome to add whatever spice you would like or sauce that you and your household prefer.
I am not very good at making step by step instructions because most of the times my hands are full, so this time I have asked my girl Anna to take them as I was making the dough.
