- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon salt
- White pepper to taste
- 1 tablespoon finely diced onion
- 2 teaspoons dried marjoram
- 2 teaspoons chopped chives
- Cook potatoes in boiling water until tender to fork tines, then drain and cool.
- Next day, peel and grate potatoes.
- Add 1 cup flour, eggs, salt, pepper, onion, marjoram and chives. Blend with wooden spoon.
- Add enough of remaining half-cup flour to form dumpling mixture that will hold
together, making balls about size of an egg.
