Karen’s Killer Fixin’s #Potato #Dumpling: GNOCCHI from Karen’s Kitchen

It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s! Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers. So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe from my own kitchen or a guest author favorite. It could be a cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes the eye and fancy…which today is GNOCCHI!

The first time I saw how easy it is to make Gnocchi, I was shocked. These small, soft pillows look like pasta, but they’re really dumplings that can serve as an alternative to some of your favorite pasta dishes. You can even make them ahead of time and freeze them for those last minute meals. 

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!


P.S. We’re at 577 recipes and counting with this posting. Hope you find some recipes you like. If this is your first visit, please check out past blogs for more Killer Fixin’s.

GNOCCHI from Karen’s Kitchen

4 good-sized potatoes
4-5 eggs

Cook the potatoes with skins on until tender. Peel and mash dry. Add eggs, one at a time. Four to make soft dough. Roll out and cut into pieces. Flour each piece. Freeze or cook immediately like spaghetti. Toss with spaghetti sauce, olive oil & garlic, pesto, or Alfredo sauce.

Happy Eating!

    1. Good morning, Eileen. It really is so easy. I used to think it was something I’d never mess with…until I found this one. Good luck!

  1. We cook gnocchi about once a month. Next time I’ll have to try this recipe instead of buying pre-made. Thanks Karen!
