Best potatoes to make cabbage and potato dumplings?

by Lee T
(Milford, CT, USA)

I have a recipe for potato dumplings where you grate 2 potatoes. Add an egg, salt and flour. Drop small spoonfuls into boiling water and rinse. Then add to sauteed cabbage, so I would like to know the best kind of potatoes to use for this recipe.


Answer:

Hi Lee,

Boiling potatoes are best for dumplings because they hold their shape best after cooking. You can use red or white potatoes which are ideal.


Tip - You could try making the dumplings even healthier by using an egg replacer or 2 tbsp of potato starch to substitute the egg.
