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 perfectly 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 the flour in a large bowl. Make a little well in the middle. Place whisked eggs, water, and melted butter in to it. Using a fork, work the ingredients together to form the dough. Finish up combining the ingredients by hand until you get a smooth, even texture.
- 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 either freeze the raw dough for later use or move onto the next step to cook them.
- Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Toss in the raw dumplings and boil them until they float to the top.
- Gather the topping ingredients.
- Dice mushrooms and sauté them in an oiled skillet for about 5 minutes. Dice the onions and add them to the skillet, cooking them until softened. Season with salt and pepper.
- Stir in bacon pieces and butter. Sauté for 5 minutes. Place dumplings into a nonstick skillet and add in sautéed mixture and butter. Cook until they turn golden brown.
- Serve immediately and enjoy!
