My Aunt was Hungarian, and she made some of the yummiest food. Tender potato dumplings which she served with butter, carmelized onions and cottage cheese. Delicious cabbage fritters, and the following potato casserole. You can serve this as an entree with a salad (and she’d often serve a bowl of sauerkraut soup before…I’ll have to drum up that recipe) or as a side dish. For those carnivores out there…this goes really well with Kielbasa, and equally well with grilled or baked fish.
