Looking for a simple dumpling recipe that's full of cheesy and buttery flavor? Give our recipe for Easy Cheesy Dumplings a try! These homemade dumplings are made with just a few simple ingredients and are so tasty!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (12-ounce) container cottage cheese, drained
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 3 tablespoons butter
What To Do:
  1. In a large bowl, mix cottage cheese, eggs, onion, and 1 teaspoon salt. Gradually add enough flour for the batter to just hold together.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil; add remaining salt. In batches, drop batter into water by tablespoonfuls and boil for 3 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer dumplings to a colander and rinse with cold running water.
  3. In a large skillet, melt 1-1/2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Carefully add half the dumpling and cook until lightly browned, turning occasionally. Repeat with remaining butter and dumplings.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I grew up eating a similar recipe but we used large curd dry cottage cheese.

We have a similar recipe called Lazy Pierogi or pierogi lenevie. Only after removing from hot water, drain and pour melted butter and breadcrumbs over
