  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tsp. canola oil
  • 1/2 cup leftover mashed potatoes
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • Dash ground nutmeg
  • 1 to 2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed

  1. Tear rolls into 1/2-in. pieces; place in a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan.
  2. Drizzle with water and squeeze dry.
  3. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Add bread; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until lightly toasted.
  4. In a small bowl, combine the potatoes, egg, nutmeg, and bread. Add enough flour to achieve desired consistency to shape into balls.

  6. Fill a Dutch oven two-thirds full with water; bring to a boil.

  9. Sprinkle Johnny’s Parmesan Garlic on top of cooked dumplings. Serve warm with butter and enjoy!
