Norwegian Potato Klub

Rated as 4.49 out of 5 Stars

"Norwegian Klub is a dish my mother made when we were growing up. I like to have it topped with bacon grease, and my wife likes them brushed with butter and sprinkled with sugar. Sliced and fried the next day these are a hearty breakfast meal. If you have a grinder, you may grind the potatoes instead of grating."

  1. Place bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Remove bacon from the pan, and reserve the grease.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour and baking powder. Stir in potatoes to make a sticky dough.
  3. Bring a large pot of water to a boil, and add 2 teaspoons of salt. Squeeze the potato mixture into 6 or 7 dumplings, or your desired size. Drop carefully into the boiling water. Simmer for 45 to 60 minutes. Remove to a platter with a slotted spoon.
  4. Serve with bacon grease brushed over the top, and crumbled bacon. These may also be sliced and fried the next day for another great meal.

Good basic recipe. As a full blooded Norwegian growing up in Norway I would suggest halving the all purpose flour and doing the rest of it with barley flour. You can also use oatmeal to make the...
