I know, this is probably something you think I typed wrong, but bear with me — it’s SLOVAKIAN! Think loaded baked potato, crossed with homemade dumplings and you are there! Potato dumplings that are often topped with sour cream, bacon, onion and even sauerkraut make this a fun thing to try…even if it looks a little scary.
Halusky S Kapustou
- 5 medium sized potatoes
- 1/2 Cup Milk
- 2 1/2 Cups Flour
- Pinch of salt
Peel the potatoes and grate them into a bowl. Then add salt, milk and flour to make a mixture, which is neither too thick nor too thin. Form the mixture into little dumplings, throwing them straight into a pot of boiling, salty water.
After the dumplings have been cooked for about 10 minutes, they rise to the top of the water. Remove the pan from the burner, drain the water.
Do NOT judge a book by it’s cover here… they look kind of scary but topping them makes it all great!
Sautee a few slices of bacon with a diced onion until the onion is clear and the bacon is crispy. Remove the bacon and dice it.
Now, top your dumplings with sour cream, the bacon/onion mix and a little sauerkraut — and rip into it like a monkey on a cupcake!
