This is one of my father's recipes from his German mother who came from a part of Germany that was later Russian territory. She ultimately immigrated to North Dakota.
This recipe consisted of ham on the bottom of a large roaster, topped by quartered peeled potatoes, then bread dumplings. Water was poured over all, the lid placed on & it was cooked over the stove top burner until water evaporated and it was cooked. We children loved it & I and my mother recently tried to replicate it & I must say, it turned out as good as my memories.
I want to know though, do we have the title correct, and does any record exist of such a recipe or was my grandmother being creative and coming up with her own version of another German recipe?! Thank you, Sharon (Bittner) Lidbeck
