The "Polish" store I usually buy homemade dumplings from quit selling them. I could not find anything comparable. So I turned to Allrecipes. Very good...quite a keeper! Now my family wants me to make these all the time...especially our 12 year old daughter who is a dumpling expert! Thanks for sharing!

I've relied on Panni's Potato Dumpling mix for many years but, since it's becoming more and more difficult to find, I'd decided to try my hand at a homemade recipe. The basis for this particular recipe is rather sound, but I, too, found them very bland. I reduced the amount of liquid for the mixture ever so slightly and roll the dumplings in my hand (approx. 1.5" - 2" round each). I've found that adding approximately a tbs. (or so; I do it by sight) each of finely-diced fresh parsley, dill and scallions, as well as adding onion or chicken bullion cubes and another tbs. or so of finely-diced scallions to the water (1 cube per cup of water) does wonders! Tried it for the potato dumplings I'd made this past St. Nicholas Day (with a Sauerbraten recipe I'd found on allrecipes.com, which always comes out great), and the dumplings came out perfect! You can also keep the dumplings in the broth and serve as a soup.

This recipe turned out great. It was super easy and takes almost as good as Grandma's.

I was looking for something that didn't require actual potatoes because I didn't have any. For the simplicity I didn't expect much, but these are excellent. I actually made them with only 1 egg (didn't read the recipe well) and they turned out just fine. Like other reviewers I had a problem kneading them. I used my dough hook and just kept adding flour but they were still sticky even after adding almost 3/4 C more flour. I pretty much took a spoon and dumped 6 blobs into chicken broth to cook. They weren't pretty, but they taste great. Next time I will make them smaller since I thought they were too big. I agree that on their own they are bland, but I've never eaten dumplings without buttter and salt or gravy of some sort. We will definately have these again. Thank you for sharing.
