Saving at home – Homemade potato gnocchi (dumplings)


Hi everyone!

As anticipated in yesterday’s recipe, today we will see how to make potato gnocchi (dumplngs) at home. Will it be that difficult? Not at all, this recipe is very simple and no special tools are needed, just a little patience in boiling the potatoes!

Making homemade gnocchi is really a great satisfaction because they are a classic of Italian cuisine.

You can also prepare many portions to keep in the freezer.

Let’s start:


Ingredients for 4 people: 1 kg of potatoes – 300 g flour – 1 egg – salt Equipment: fork – potato masher


Boil the potatoes with their skin in plenty of boiling water.

When they are cooked, peel them and pass them through a potato masher by letting them fall back onto a work surface.

Open the potatoes in a fountain, add the flour and an egg, then start kneading.

Do not work the dough too much as it will not have to acquire elasticity.

At this point, take portions of the dough just make and shape them to form long cylinders of the right diameter for your gnocchi. Cut these cylinders into many pieces in more or less equal length, in this way you will have prepared your gnocchi.

Now you can choose to make lines on the gnocchi using a fork. You can also leave them as they are.

If you decide to prepare more to freeze, it’s better to place them on a paper tray that you will leave in the freezer for an hour, before putting them directly into plastic bags. This will prevent them from sticking to each other.

Enjoy your meal!
