How to Make Dumplings

Want to learn how to make dumplings ("Klöße und Knödel") including the famous and very traditional potato dumplings? You'll find various recipes for those, plus some VERY strange ones in the list below as well.

My very favorite ones are the Thüringer Klösse. These are not only time consuming to make, but also quite a bit of work. Easier are the potato dumplings made from cooked potatoes. Served with my rouladen alternative, flatladen, and sweet and sour red cabbage -- this is a favorite meal at our house.

These dumplings were one of my Mutti's favourite’s as well, because they were so quick to make.

Of course, the homemade croutons in the middle add the extra touch of "delicious-ness".

If you want to try something a bit different, there are the traditional bread dumplings that are so common in the Bavarian area of Germany. It has an interesting method of how to make dumplings using leftover bread. The results are delicious. Great "soaker-uppers" of gravy!

Something I've learned when making dumplings, especially if you don't make them too often, is to make a "trial" one first.

When I first started, and not knowing for sure if the dough would hold together, I'd just make all the dumplings at once and put them in the pot of gently boiling water. After my first flop when they all fell apart, I learned to always try one dumpling first. If it held together, I'd form the rest and cook them then.
