  • Bake Potatoes at 400 °F for about 1 hour. Use a fork to check if they are cooked. Allow them to cool enough to be able to handle them.

  • Cut potatoes in half, spoon out the inside. Leave the potato skin thick enough, if you plan to use it. Run the scooped potato through a ricer or a grinder. Let it cool down.

  • Whisk eggs in a separate bowl. Drizzle the egg mixture over the potatoes.

  • Mix salt into flour. Sprinkle flour over potatoes. Work the dough, just enough to combine everything together.

  • Cut off a small piece of dough and roll it into a straight line. Cut it into half inch sized pieces. Take each piece and roll it down the tines of a well floured fork.

  • To cook gnocchi, bring a pot of water to a boil. Add gnocchi to the water and stir to prevent it from them sticking together. Cook until gnocchi will float to the top. Serve with your favorite pasta sauce or butter.
