Looking for a dumpling recipe with ham in the middle

Does anyone have a recipe for dumplings that have a chunk of ham in the middle? The parents of the boss at one place I worked would bring them in around the holidays. Thought of them the other day, but can't find anything with ham when I google the recipe. They didn't look real appealing, but they sure tasted good!

TIA

Never heard of ham in the middle of dumplings. I did find this onlineat All Recipes. Hope it's what you are looking for. If you search Norwegian Potato Dumplings you will find more recipes.

  • Cook 1 h

  • Ready In 1 h 30 m

Recipe By:Vickie Spencer
"This is a traditional Norwegian main dish. My grandmother always served it with fresh peas. As good as the potato klubb are the first day, they're even better the second day sliced and fried in butter until golden brown. We like to have them for breakfast with fried eggs."
Ingredients
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 cups potatoes, peeled and grated
  • 2 tablespoons grated onion
  • 8 ounces cooked ham, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 cup melted butter
Directions
  1. Mix the flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, baking powder, and pepper together in a bowl. Place the potatoes and onion in a large bowl, and stir in the flour mixture until thoroughly blended. Use floured hands to knead the potato mixture in the bowl until it takes on the quality of stiff bread dough. Add additional flour if the dough is too sticky.
  2. Pinch off a tennis ball-sized piece of dough and shape it around a cube of ham, completely covering the ham, to form a ball. Repeat with remaining dough and ham cubes. Set aside any extra ham.
  3. Fill a large pot with water, add 2 teaspoons salt and any extra ham, and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Carefully slide the balls into the boiling water, a few at a time. Loosen any sticking to the bottom of the pot. Simmer for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Remove with a slotted spoon, and drain on a plate. Serve hot with melted butter.

Just make dumplings and put ham in them. Bisquick has a great recipe.

My grandmother' German potato dumpling recipe has toasted croutons in the center, so why not cubed ham?  I don't have the recipe with me but you could just look up a recipe.  It sounds really good too me.

 

I meant grandmother's .  For some reason, I cannot make corrections on my iPad.
