Preparation

Cook the unpeeled potatoes in salted water until soft. Peel them while still hot, pass through a fine sieve and let cool. Afterwards add the butter (room temperature) and egg yolk and mix together until all the ingredients have combined well. Carefully add wheat flour and potato flour; also add some salt and pepper. Leave the pastry dough for one hour in the fridge. Roll the potato dough into one-cm-rolls, cut it into 2 cm long pieces and form Gnocchi with the prongs of a fork, and then cook them for approximately 3 minutes in boiling salted water. Drain the Gnocchi and toss them carefully in the butter sauce.

Butter sauce:

Boil vegetable stock and add the ice-cold butter cubes, then add salt and pepper. Keep warm.

Serving Suggestion:

Place the potato Gnocchi on a plate and garnish with Speck Alto Adige PGI, alpine cheese and parsley.
