These potato dumplings are easy to make and taste wonderful. They are a perfect accompaniment for dishes like Kasseler steaks, Sauerbraten, pot roasts and many other recipes that
produce a rich and tasty gravy or sauce. Dumplings are very popular in many countries of the world. The history of dumplings can be traced back at least to the late 16 hundreds or early 17th century. They are very popular in England, Middle European countries like Austria and Germany (especially Bavaria) and Italy.
Dumplings or Knödel or Klöße as they are called in Germany are made of different kinds of dough and often inserted with a special filling like plums (Zwetschken) or as I did in my recipe a slice of bread or roll / bun that has been diced and roasted in Parsley butter.
