Probably, there is not a single person who has never eaten potatoes dumplings. They are good because their taste can be varied by adding mushrooms to mashed potatoes. Moreover, you can use both fresh mushrooms and canned ones.
Dumplings are boiled for only 5-7 minutes, so the filling for them is made from completely ready-to-eat products. This is especially true for mushrooms. Fresh mushrooms are first fried in a pan with onions, brought to full readiness, and then combined with mashed potatoes. The exception is wild mushrooms, which are also recommended to be boiled before frying.
Canned mushrooms are added to the already fried onions, heated all together to get rid of the liquid, and then also combined with mashed potatoes. You can also use salted mushrooms. But before you combine the mushrooms with onions, they need to be soaked well to remove excess salt.
For potato filling, onions are sautéed in margarine, butter or ghee. That is, on the fat that thickens when cooled. But vegetable oil can make the filling liquid, especially in the case when the liquid was not completely drained from the potatoes.
Dumplings, perhaps, will seem difficult to someone, but the result will please loved ones. The dough recipe is very simple and can be made with water, kefir (other fermented milk products) and even sour cream.
The ideal filling is boiled potatoes, if time is short, you can try to make them raw (grated and squeezed), only you need to cook them a little longer.
But, most importantly, do everything with love, it will definitely affect the final result. You can also involve the whole family in the process of modeling dumplings, this unites and unites, helps to appreciate the work of loved ones.
Dip them in boiling water, stir until they float to the top, otherwise the dumplings may stick to the bottom of the pan. Boil them in plenty of salted water until tender. Use a slotted spoon to catch the dumplings from the water, put them on a dish, pour over with melted butter, sprinkle with chopped herbs, chosen to your liking.
