Wild Knedliky (Czech Potato Dumplings)

    1 qt cold mashed potatoes
    1 qt bread flour (measured not weighed)
    1 tbsp farina or cream of wheat
    1 tsp salt
    1 cup cooked wild rice
    1 egg, beaten

Place potatoes in a large bowl with flour, farina, salt, wild rice and egg. Mix by hand to thoroughly combine all ingredients; let stand 5 minutes. Shape into 3 oz cylinder-shaped dumplings.

In large pot, bring salted water to a boil; add dumplings. Dumplings will fall to bottom of pot, so gently stir them off bottom. Bring back to brisk boil for 15 minutes. Check dumplings for doneness by slicing one through the middle. It is done when it appears fluffy and white throughout. Remove dumplings from water; make a slit in the center of each and brush with butter.

6-8 servings
