Bramborove Knedliky

Bramborove Knedliky means potato dumplings in Czech. On Monday (23 Nov) my dear friend S invited me over for a nice Czech lunch. It was a pleasure to watch her hand make these really awesome dumplings. She started off with a mixture of mashed and grated potatoes, flour, semolina, a little butter and an egg.
She kneaded it till it was nice and firm.
Then she cut it very quickly into long pieces and shaped them out like Gnocchi.
They were quickly immersed into very hot water and cooked until they start floating.
She strained them into serving dishes and added a very hearty serving of freshly ground poppy seeds and powdered sugar.
Drizzle hot butter on top.
I ate it nice and hot and I did not realise my whole plate was empty in a matter of minutes.


  1. OK, that one is a beauty. I liked the potato dumplings we had when we went there.

    The pictures gives me some courage to try.

    Some pork, these dumplings and cabbage is the way to go...
