Kopytka Potato Dumplings

Children love them. Kopytka Potato Dumplings can be served as a side dish or with a sauce, as a separate meal. Meat sauce, mushroom or vegetable would taste so good. In June try Chanterelle Cream Sauce.

Recipe is easy and you use potatoes left from a dinner. This is what our Grandmas have been doing in the past – using everything and not throwing away a thing. Give a second life to one day cooked potatoes:)

Cooked and uncooked kopytka potato dumplings on the table


  • 700 g /1 and half lb (25 oz) cooked potatoes
  • 1 and half cup flour
  • 1 egg
  • salt

Mash potatoes thoroughly just after they are cooked. If you have leftover potatoes it’s best to grind them.

Once they are cool add flour and egg, season with salt. Mix all well. Form rollers and cut them diagonally.

Pour water into a large pot. Bring to boil and place kopytka inside. Let them cook for 1 minute after they come up to the surface.

Take Kopytka potato dumplings out with a sieve and serve right away.

  3. Can you use these dumplings in soup? Maybe boil them in the soup, or just add to soup before serving.

    My babcia would make the most delicious pan sauce to go with these -usually pork based. Do you have any recipes like that?
