Very good recipe. I modified it a bit. I flavored the cottage cheese with garlic powder, salt, pepper, and italian seasoning. Instead of simmering in milk, I made a white sauce from butter, flour, milk, curry powder, saffron, salt and pepper...Yum! I found that simmering the dumplings in the sauce for 20 minutes more than sufficient.

I'm sure this could turn out well, but I made this when I was first beginning to cook. I had big problems keeping the stuff inside. It tasted pretty good, but it was also really messy.

Jodi! This is a KILLER recipe! Absolutely delicious and easy to do! I plan to make these very often, and during berry season, I will add a little sugar to the cheese and some blueberries! Yowza! Thanks for a great recipe!

Definitely needs modification. Prepared like this, they are flavorless and the texture is awful. Perhaps would be better with mods, but I will not make these again!

These were on the messy side, but good when all through. I used a little bit of heavy whipping cream to make the sauce a little thicker. I will try them again sometime.

These are great but much better when you bake them till golden brown instead of fry. Then instead of evaporated milk i used whipping cream and add dill to the cream, bring whipping cream and dill to a boil then add to dumplings and bake for an hour instead of simmer on stove.
