Ukrainian Dumplings aka Galushki Recipe

As most of you know that I am Ukrainian and my hubby is from Siberia. His grandparents are form Ukraine, so he is pretty familiar with Ukrainian foods. Galushki (dumplings) were one of those things that I had introduced him to. For me, they bring so much memories because I pretty much spent my whole childhood eating these. My grandma made them very often and I'm so happy I got to try them.

They are treated in Ukraine like gnocchi and likewise work perfect with any toppings or sauce! You will love them if you've never tried them and if you have, this will bring a ton of childhood memories.

Prepare ingredients for the recipe.
Place all the flour in a large bowl. Make a little well in the middle. Place whisked eggs, water and melted butter in to it. Work with a fork to form the dough. You can finish it up by hand.
Divide the dough into eight even pieces.
On a floured surface, roll each piece into a long string. Dice each string into small pieces.
At this point you can cook the dumplings or leave them in a freezer for next time.
Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Throw in dumplings and cook them until they float to the top.
Prepare ingredients for the topping.
Dice mushrooms and saute them in an oiled skillet for about 5 minutes. Add in onions and continue cooking until softened. Season them with salt and pepper.
Stir in bacon pieces and butter, cook for another 5 minutes. Place dumplings into a nonstick skillet, add in sauteed mixture and butter. Cook until they turn golden brown.
Serve immediately.
