I was always very intimidated to make gnocchi—it just sounded like something that was going to be really difficult. But it’s actually sooo easy!! I wish I’d started making it so much sooner. With only three ingredients, it’s an incredibly quick meal. Now, every time I cook mashed potatoes, I make sure that I have enough for leftovers. Then, the next day, I use what’s left to create this quick-’n-easy meal for my family!
Day after Thanksgiving Gnocchi
Recipe Type: Dinner
Serving Size: 1/2 cup
Makes 8 servings
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
Makes: 8 servings
Serving size: ½ cup
- 1 cup leftover mashed potatoes
- 2 beaten eggs
- 1½ cups all-purpose flour
- Fill a large pot with water, then bring it to a boil.
- While water is heating up, mix together all the ingredients in a medium bowl.
- Knead for about 5 minutes, or until it has a doughy texture.
- On a floured surface, divide the dough into three balls.
- Using your hand, roll out each ball into a long rope.
- If you have a gnocchi roller, use it to roll out the dough. Alternatively, you can use the prongs of a fork to make small indentations.
- Cut each gnocchi about 1 inch long.
- Once the water is boiling, add a third of the gnocchis to it.
- They’ll sink to the bottom, then rise to the top.
- Once they’re at the top, cook for an additional 3 minutes.
- Skim them off of the top, then set them aside.
- Cook the remaining batches of gnocchi.
- Serve with your favorite sauce—marinara’s a great one!
