I don’t share Polish food here as often as I should probably. You probably had forgotten I was even Polish.
I do believe that, Polish food is definitely worth spreading, but I’m always so eager to try new recipes that I keep forgetting of those staples.
When it comes to potatoes I don’t think Irish are the kings (sorry guys), I would argue that Polish know their way around potatoes so much better. Feel free to prove me wrong. I know there is a song about colcannon, but there are endless recipes in Polish cuisine that highlight the potato – potato pancakes, lazy dumplings, you can stuff pierogi with potatoes and cheese, there is potato cake I should finally make, cepeliny, pyzy, kołduny, knedle, kopytka, etc. I hope to have them all on the blog one day.
Today we will make Silesian dumplings (kluski śląskie). They are the most popular in Silesia as the name suggests. They are perfect match with a stew or roast with some gravy. But they will do with any type of gravy or even melted butter.
- 1kg potatoes
