- 5 to 6 Yellow Potatoes
- 1 1/2 Cups White Flour
- 2 Eggs

- Add Mashed potatoes, flour, eggs, olive oil, and salt in bowl. Mix until it becomes dough.
- So dough is very soft and you will need to use flour to dust your hands and table to make the gnocchi balls. Take a hand full of dough and roll it out into a 1/2 inch thick rope/roll. Cut dough roll into 1 inch long dumplings. Repeat until all the dough is cut. Make sure you do not touch dough balls to each other or they will stick. Dust the dough balls with with enough flour to prevent sticking. TIP: You can add little marks to the top by pressing a fork gently on top of the gnocchi dough balls.
- Once all dough is cut. You can add the gnocchi dough to a large pot of boiling water. Boil for about 10 minutes or until all the gnocchi has floated to the top. Gently strain water and serve. TIP: These are even better if you make ahead so they have a few hours to firm up. Reheat them in the oven or microwave.
