Italian Gnocchi Board!

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

Directions

  1. Place potato flakes in a medium-size bowl. Pour in boiling water; stir until blended. Let cool.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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!
