My own little story behind this recipe is celebrating Christmas in sunny Australia in 2018. Wondering what would be a nice dish for christmas evening, I was thinking of those kind of “Light Dumplings” as a recreation of our traditional dumplings back home in Germany. I always loved, when my mom was heating up the leftover dumplings in a pan and the mashed potato mixture got golden and crispy – so why not put it in the pan right away? Meanwhile my fiancé asked several times to cook this recipe agin, so I guess it is a good one and worth sharing with you guys.
