Pre Prep at Home

  • Pack milk, butter, deb potato separately.

What To Do At Camp

  • Rehydrate veggies in bag and set aside.
  • Make up powdered milk to 1/4 cup milk.
  • Boil milk and butter over low heat.
  • Add potato flakes while stirring (the result should be a very dry potato mixture that has a crumbly texture). Set aside to cool.
  • Once the potato mixture is cool enough to touch, combine the flour/powdered eggs and potatoes.
  • Knead until the dough comes together.  
  • Pull small sections of dough off and roll in hands into gnocchi sized balls.
  • Boil 2 cups of water and salt to taste.
  • Add gnocchi to the boiling water, and cover with the lid.
  • Cook for 2 mins with lid on and gnocchi will rise to the top and be cooked.
  • Skim them off the top of the water and then fry in frypan with other ingredients.
  • Serve sprinkled with grated Parmesan cheese.
