Silesian potato dumplings Ingredients: - 1 kg potatoes - potato flour - 2 large eggs Boil the potatoes and mash them.

Add the eggs and mix everything. The dough should be like 'modeling clay'. It can't be too dry or your dumplings will dissolve in the water.

Boil them approx. 3 minutes from the moment in which they touch the surface. MAIN COURSE
