[Pyzy] Toothsome Polish potato dumplings

A polish friend of mine brought this potato dumplings to a farewell potluck prepared by a group of friends. 

When I first saw it, I knew that I'd love this dumpling even before I tasted it for the first time. 

This recipe became one of my favorite recipes. 
Everybody in my household love it too!

2 + 1/2 lbs peeled potato
6 tablespoons flour
3 eggs
4 oz. ground pork (or beef) cooked
1 onion finely chopped
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons bread crumbs
salt and pepper
For sauce:
1 onion chopped
4 oz. of bacon chopped

Yield: serves 8


1. Cook Half of the potatoes, cool, and mash or grate potato with a grater/ food mill. 

2. Grate the rest of the raw potatoes finely. 

Drain grated raw potatoes and place them in a tea towel, 

and twist and squeeze the tea towel to drain all the water out of the potatoes. 

Grated raw potato turn pink quickly. But nothing to worry. Once the tea towel is squeezed, only creamy color will be back!

3. Mix with cooked potatoes. 

4. Add flour, two eggs and a pinch of salt, and knead the dough.

Dough is ready!

5. Fry chopped onions in butter, and cook with meat. 

Add the breadcrumbs and egg. Season to taste. 

Now stuffing is ready!

Roll out a size of walnut dough to form a pancake. 

Lay a teaspoon of meat stuffing on the dough before puckering it 

and roll the dough into balls. 

Now these stuffed potato balls are ready to swim in the boiling water.

Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil and drop in the dumplings. 
Cook a few minutes until dumplings float to the top.

You can take out pyzy easily with a slotted spoon or a sieve.

Put the cooked potato dumplings aside.

Meanwhile, in a skillet, 
fry chopped bacon with chopped onions until golden brown. 

Toss with cooked dumplings and serve. 

You can use any kind of meat~

This was Pablo's plate.
As I wrote above, both boys love these potato dumpling balls.

It's a perfect item for a potluck party too.

Bon appétit!
