3 lbs. potatoes, peeled, cooked and mashed
1 C. hot milk
¼ C. bacon grease
3/4 C. diced, cooked bacon
¼ C. diced, cooked onion
½ tsp. ground nutmeg
3 tbsp. chicken base
½ t. white pepper
4 large eggs
1½ C. cracker meal
1 3/4 C. flour
3 C. fried bread croutons
Bring large pot of water to boil on stove.
Combine potatoes with milk, bacon grease, bacon, onion, nutmeg, chicken base, pepper, eggs, cracker meal and flour until mixture is smooth. Fold in croutons to make a dough.
Break off a piece of dumpling dough and test in boiling water to make sure it holds together. Form mixture into dumplings about the size of a medium potato and cook in boiling water 10 to 15 min., or until done.
