Basic Homemade Gnocchi

Print Recipe


  • 2 cups mashed potatoes boil the potatoes with their peels on and THEN remove the peels before you mash; so much easier!--about 5-6 potatoes
  • 1 ½ cups flour plus ½ cup as needed
  • 1 egg beaten


  • Mix the potatoes and egg together well.
  • Add in ¾ cup of the flour and mix well.
  • Continue adding in flour until the desired consistency is met.
  • Roll out your dough on a well-floured surface into long logs and cut.
  • Cook immediately or freeze.


Rather than rolling out your dough and cutting, try using a piping bag to pipe your gnocchi.
To Cook:
Bring lightly salted water to a boil and add the gnocchi.
Boil about 3-4 minutes or until the gnocchi float to the surface.
