Home made gnocchi

Home made gnocchi sound fancy, but the recipe is pretty simple. In fact, it really isn’t much more work than making pancakes!

What you need:

600g potatoes
100g flour
1 egg yolk
salt
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp olive oil
6 tbsp grated parmesan cheese

What you do:

Parboil the potatoes, then peel and mash while they are still warm. On a clean work surface, quickly combine potatoes, flour, egg yolk and salt until smooth. If the dough is still sticky, add a little more flour. On a cutting board, form four 1.5cm/0.6in thick rolls, then cut them in 1cm/0.4in pieces.

Cook the gnocchi in salted water until they come up to the surface, then remove them from the water using a slotted spoon. Don’t throw them all in at once, work in three or four batches. Set aside.

In a large skillet, heat the butter and olive oil. When the fat is hot, add the gnocchi. Let them brown a little from all sides. When they are golden brown, sprinkle with parmesan cheese and serve.

Tip!

You don’t have to sauté the gnocchi. But I like them a little crispy!
