Potato Gnocchi

Source: The Martha Stewart Show, February 2012


  • 3/4 to 1 cup flour, plus more for dusting
  • 1 large egg, plus 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces


  1. Fill a saucepan, fitted with a steamer basket, 3 inches high with water. Add potatoes, cover, and steam until tender, about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, lightly flour a baking sheet and set aside.

  2. Remove potatoes from steamer basket. Pass them through a ricer or food mill into a medium bowl. Sprinkle with 3/4 cup flour, and add the egg and egg yolk. Sprinkle with nutmeg and salt. Stir mixture with a fork to combine well. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, knead until smooth (1 to 2 minutes), adding more flour as necessary if dough is too sticky, 1 tablespoon at a time.

  3. Divide dough into 4 to 6 pieces. Roll each piece into a long rope about 3/4 inch thick. Cut ropes crosswise into 1-inch pieces. Set aside on the floured baking sheet until ready to cook.
