Greetings Baconians! It’s me – your King, playing in the castle kitchen again!
Today I have a truly yummy thing that I hope you will try – your family will be happy you’re serving potatoes to them in a DIFFERENT way, and your tummies will all be happy because it’s a recipe that includes our favorite thing – BACON!
Ready????? Let’s begin!
Potato Dumplings With Bacon
2 large potatoes, peeled and chopped
2 large eggs
1/4 pound bacon cooked and chopped
1/2 large onion chopped
- Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to boil.
- Place potatoes in food processor, and pulse until finely chopped. Add eggs, and pulse a few times to combine. Pour mixture into a large bowl. Mix in enough flour to make a very thick dough. (add a little flour at a time to get your dough thick so it will hold together in the water!)
- Place dough by spoonfuls into boiling water. Boil until done, about 20 minutes (depending on size). Drain, and set dumplings aside.
- Place chopped bacon and onion in a skillet over medium heat. Cook a few minutes until bacon releases fat. Place hot dumplings into pan; cook until bacon is crisp and onions and dumplings are browned.
How great is this as an alternative to some other starch for dinner? Not “just potatoes” but potato dumplings AND bacon – together – who knew???!!!! YUM.
I hope you’ll give this one a whirl. Meanwhile I shall be on the hunt for another fabulous baconized recipe to share with you NEXT Saturday when I again raid the castle kitchen and become your BACON CHEF DE CUISINE!
See you next week……..King Teddy
