1 cup potato flakes
1 1/2 cups Bisquick or flour
1 cup of boiling water
1 large egg beaten
1 or 2 roasted garlic cloves mashed
Salt and pepper
- Place potato flakes in a medium-size bowl. Pour in boiling water; stir until blended. Let cool.
- Stir in egg, roasted garlic, salt, and pepper. Blend in enough flour to make a fairly stiff dough. Turn dough out on a well floured board. Knead lightly.
- Divide dough in half. Shape each half into a long thin roll, the thickness of a thin bread stick. With a knife dipped in flour, cut into bite-size pieces about 1 inch in size. I use an Italian Gnocchi Board (optional). Just pinch each and roll on the board until lines are created a little over half way round. Set each aside until done.
- Place a few gnocchi in boiling water. As the gnocchi rise to the top of the pot, remove them with a slotted spoon. Repeat until all are cooked.
note: just skip the garlic and you’ll have regular Gnocchi!
