Fried potato dumplings

Leftover food

Potato dumplings such as Thuringian dumplings are a popular accompaniment to various roast dishes such as sauerbraten or a beef roulade. However, many swear that the dumplings are more delicious and taste even better when they are fried again the next day.


The cold dumplings are cut into approx. 2 cm thick slices and fried on both sides until golden brown in hot butter. A scrambled or fried egg on top. And a salad with it.
A quick leftover meal is ready.

This makes these dumplings a classic leftover meal with many fans. The preparation can be savory or sweet. The rest of the dumplings can also be put on the plate in the same way.
