Gnocchi Roller Sunday part 1

So I bought this Gnocchi Roller back in October and finally used it.
I used this  Mario Batali Gnocchi recipe from Food Network.
However he has multiple variations of this recipe all over the internet.

2-3 Lbs potatoes
2 cups flour
1 egg

1. Boil your potatoes. (2-3 lbs)

2. Peel the skin off while warm ~ Good Luck ;)
and mash them thru a potato ricer.

(I think I used more than 3 lbs of potatoes....)

3. Dump the mix on the counter. 
(Hubby was asleep for this so he didn't get to see that mess)

4. Make a well and crack your eggs into the center, sprinkle your 2 cups of flour.
(I should have only used one egg...they ended up a bit eggie.)

It will eventually look like this. Have fun mixing by hand.

Then you roll out the dough and cut off 1 inch pieces.
You can then either roll them down your fancy Gnocchi Roller 
or use the tines of a fork to make the Gnocchi  indentations.

I recommend enlisting help because this took me FOREVER.
I was supposed to go to my Favorite Jewelry Lady's Open House 
and was too busy rollin' my Gnocchi to get there in enough time
Sorry Rach! =(

Boil for 5 minutes until they float and enjoy!
I have a bunch in the freezer.


  1. YUM - i love love love love love gnocchi's!!!!

    1. Me too! I love the Gnocchi Soup at Olive Garden (I found a recipe online that is pretty exact and make it at home)
      Next time I have to use only one egg- they were a bit eggy for me.
