finely chopped onion
dry bread crumbs
If you leave the potato dough in the fridge overnight after mashing it makes it much easier to work with
I live in Germany and the proper spelling of these would be Kartoffel Klöss, I would omit the nutmeg and add bacon bits instead.
My very German family has been making a ariation of this recipe for years. We add the onion to the potatoes, do not use nutmeg and only butter browned bread crumbs on top. This variation was good although we prefer the recipe my grandmother brought from generations in Germany.
They tasted great! I let the potatoes cool off completely before I mixed up the batch. I omitted the nutmeg and added some onions instead. The flavor was great when I poured on my pork/wine gravy.
I found these easy to make and faster than I expected. My first batch didn't hold together well, but I found adding another egg white fixed it. These were a very big hit, especially with my son's darling girlfriend.
My Oma always made these, we called them Oma Balls, she used bacon and I was happy to find the recipe and add the bacon.....Soooo good!
these were wonderful. We liked the instant boxed kind with our sauerbraten but, these were so much better. Thanks!
I was given a recipe for Kartoffel Kloss by my mother-in-law who received it from her mother-in-law. I have lost the receipe so I have used this one with some variations. Works great with the Sauerbrauten! Still looking for my original German receipe!
