  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to boil.
  2. Place potatoes in food processor, and pulse until finely chopped. Add eggs, and pulse a few times to combine. Pour mixture into a large bowl. Mix in enough flour to make a very thick dough.
  3. Place dough by spoonfuls into boiling water. Boil until done, about 20 minutes (depending on size). Drain, and set dumplings aside.
  4. Place chopped bacon and onion in a skillet over medium heat. Cook a few minutes until bacon releases fat. Place hot dumplings into pan; cook until bacon is crisp and onions and dumplings are browned.

These were great. I chopped the bacon and onion in the food processor too. I fried cabbage with the bacon and onion and then added the dumplings. Just to experiment, I added shredded cheddar and...

This method of making dumplings is so quick and easy! The dumplings themselves deserve 5 stars because of their versatility. I just didn't care too much for the bacon onion part because I a lot ...
