From: Chris Fennimore, QED Cooks
Primary category: Entrees


1 cup mashed potatoes
1 cup flour
1 egg, beaten
1 clove garlic mashed
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp white pepper


Mix together the potatoes, flour, garlic, salt and pepper until it forms a dough. Add enough flour to make a stiff dough. Knead until smooth and elastic.

Take a piece of the dough about the size of a lemon and roll it out into a rope about the thickness of your pinky. Cut into 3/4" pieces. Form each piece into a gnocchi by making a diagonal dent in the center and then rolling it along the tines of a fork. Or you can simply leave it as a small dumpling.

Drop 8-10 of them into boiling salted water and cook for about 3 minutes. They'll float to the top. Remove with a slotted spoon and keep warm while you cook the rest in batches. Serve with melted butter, parsley and grated cheese or with a nice thick tomato sauce.

If you don't want to cook them right away, put them on a floured cookie sheet and then in the freezer. After an hour or so, take them off the cookie sheet and put them in a plastic bag. Then you can keep them on hand. Don't defrost before cooking.
