Dumplings for Halusky: Grate potatoes. Add egg, salt, and flour to potatoes and mix well. Dough should not be thin. More or less flour may be used according to size of potatoes. Put dough on plate. Use knife to cut off small portion at a time into boiling water. Boil about 15 minutes. Keep stirring to prevent scorching. Drain in colander. Rinse once with water. Do not let halushky get cold. Place in bowl. Pour cabbage mixture over halushky. Serve hot.
My girlfriend, does not make her own halushky (dumplings) all the time. She uses a bag of prepared, frozen Italian Gnocchi. These work just as well, if you donÂ’t want to go through all the hassle of making your own dumplings.
