This Gluten Free Dumplings Recipe is based on an old Polish recipe. Kluskies, a potato dumpling, are a delicious addition to any meal.

Like a lot of my recipes, the quantities will often depend on how much you plan on making. There is also an option here that you can make them with gluten, or without, and you can use a “premade” version (to save time), or, you can make the dumplings yourself.

  • If you wish to make them yourself, you will use a recipe akin to making gnocchi.
  • 1 1/2 pounds of potato
  • 1 1/2 cups of gluten free (or regular) flour

If you do not wish to make them yourself, simply purchase some premade gnocchi. My favorite for gluten free can be found here.

  1. Dumplings (however many you make or buy)
  2. 1/2 cup – 1 cup of butter (salted)
  3. 1 cup Breadcrumbs (if using gluten free, I like the Schar gluten free breadcrumbs). If you wish to make them yourself, toast the bread a bit and then blitz it in your food processor.
  4. Salt to taste


If you are making your own dumplings:

  1. Boil your potatoes until they are nice and soft.
  2. Flour your surface and drain the potatoes once they are cooked through.
  3. Mix together your potatoes and flour. It will come together as if it is a dough. Roll it out into logs.
  4. Slice it up so that the dumplings are around the size of gnocchi.
  5. Place a pot of water on the stove, add salt.
  6. Bring to boil, add your dumplings. Once they float, they are finished. Set them aside.

If you are using premade:

  1. Boil your dumplings according to the instructions.
  2. While they are boiling, add your butter to a pan.
  3. Allow the butter to melt and then add your breadcrumbs into the pan.
  4. Once your dumplings are floating, transfer them into your pan.
  5. Make sure to coat all of the dumplings with the butter and breadcrumbs. Salt to season and taste along the way.
  6. Serve when they are a nice golden brown.
