“My next door neighbor taught me how to make these when I used to babysit her kids. Her parents were from Ukraine and this is what they made. They are scrumptious...way better than the frozen kind.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • For filling
  • 3 cups mashed potatoes (totally guessing...they made me enter an amount. 3 cups should be more than enough.)
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 12 cup butter
  • 1 cup Velveeta cheese (to taste, really, just use however much you want, again, I had to enter an amount. I am just guessin)
  • For dough
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1 -1 12 cup water


  1. For filling: make mashed potatoes as usual, butter, salt, pepper, milk or cream; however you usually make it.
  2. Saute onion in butter till tender. Add to potatoes.
  3. Add velveeta cheese to potatoes, to taste.
  4. Set aside.
  5. For dough: make well in the 2 cups of flour. Pour beaten egg in well and mix.
  6. Add 1 to 1 1/2 cups water and mix.
  7. Make into long ropes of dough. Cut into little squares and flatten them out.
