Recipes- Speyer's Gnocchi

I never realized how simple it would be to make's as easy as 3,2,1! Thank you to Housewife Carolyn and her son Hayden. I can't wait to make these myself.
Speyer's Gnocchi
3 lbs potatoes
2 cups of flour
1 beaten egg
a pinch of salt
Gather your ingredients
Bake or boil 3 lbs of potatoes
Put potatoes through ricer
Start boiling a pot of water (about 3/4th full)
Add flour, a pinch of salt and beaten egg. Blend until just mixed (it feels like homemade play-doh when it's done).
Roll into ropes about 3/4 inch in diameter and cut into 3/4 pieces
Lightly press and roll with fork.
Drop into boiling water and cook until the gnocchi rises to the top about 1 minute
Serve with sauce.  Carolyn's family prefer eating it with a garlic alfredo. A bolder sauce is good as the flavor of the gnocchi is mild. ENJOY!
