DYP Gnocchi


Ingredients

1 pound DYP's
3 large Egg Yolks
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese, freshly grated
1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg, grated
1 teaspoon Rosemary, chopped
1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt
1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper, ground
1 cup All Purpose Unbleached Flour
1 tablespoon Butter


Directions

Bake the DYP's in a 375º F oven until well done, about 12-15 minutes. Let sit until cool enough to handle, cut in half.

Pass the potatoes through a potato ricer. Make a mound of potatoes on the counter with a well in the middle. Add the egg yolks, the cheese, nutmeg, chopped rosemary, salt and pepper. Add the potatoes and mix well with hands. Sprinkle with flour, little by little, folding and pressing the dough until it just holds together. If the mixture is too dry, add another egg yolk or a little water. Do not over mix.

Cut the dough into 4 pieces. Roll each piece into a rope about 1/2-inch in diameter. Cut into 1/2-inch-long pieces. Lightly flour the gnocchi as you cut them. You can use a gnocchi board to shape your gnocchi’s.

As you shape the gnocchi, dust them lightly with flour and scatter them on baking sheets lined with parchment paper.

When ready to cook, bring a large pot of water to a boil and add salt. Drop in the gnocchi and cook for about 90 seconds from the time they rise to the surface. Remove the cooked gnocchi with a spider or slotted spoon. Sauté the gnocchi in a little butter and serve.
