Wiener Kartoffel Kloesse


  • 8 potatoes
  • about 1 cup of flour
  • 2 eggs
  • salt
  • grated nutmeg
  • fresh goose fat
  • part of an onion
  • 1/2 cup of grated bread crumbs


Boil potatoes. When they are very soft drain off every drop of water, lay them on a clean baking-board and mash them while hot with a rolling-pin, adding flour. When thoroughly mashed, break in eggs, salt to taste, and flavor with grated nutmeg. Now flour the board thickly and foil out this potato dough about as thick as your little finger and spread with the following: Heat some fresh goose fat in a spider, cut up onion very fine, add it to the hot fat together with bread crumbs. When brown, spread over the dough and roll just as you would a jelly-roll. Cut into desired lengths (about three or four inches), put them in boiling water, slightly salted, and boil uncovered for about fifteen minutes. Pour some hot goose grease over the dumplings.
