preparing the potato dough  
Serving the dumplings
In Austria Wurstknoedel and all stuffed non-sweet potato dumplings are served with gravy and usually come with Sauerkraut or green salads. Serve non-sweet dumplings on gravy and with Sauerkraut or green leaves.
preparing the fillings
Cut celery, leeks and meat in very small dice, or mince it. Fry ingredients slightly in a pan. Season with salt, pepper, little garlic and fresh parsley. Cover this and put in the fridge. After 30 minutes start to form little balls of the filling. When finished put this little balls in the freezer, what makes it easier to coat them with dough later.
Wash plums, open them and get rid of the stone. Try your plums, if they are too sour, place a bit of sugar instead of the stone. If you only have big plums, part them and use only one half of a plum, like I did when cooking this recipe.
stuffing the dumplings
Now take a handful of the crumbly potato dough. Squeeze and press it and start to flatten it.
When you have formed a small bowl, place one of the meatballs inside and start to coat it with dough, close all openings and squeeze and press the dumpling, to make come out all of the remaining air. If there is only a small air chamber inside the dumpling, it will widen when being cooked and make the dumpling brake.
For making the sweet dumplings with plum or apricot or even strawberry you proceed just like above.
cooking the dumplings
When water boils strongly, add dumplings at once and cover the pot, so it starts boiling again as soon as possible. Boil for 3-4 minutes, take away the heat and leave dumplings in water for further 15 minutes. Now they should be cooked.
Proceed with all dumplings, sweet or savory and place them on flour covered board before cooking them.
Breadcrumbs for sweet dumplings
The sweet dumplings, stuffed with fruit, are usually tossed in sweet breadcrumbs. For this melt butter in a pan, add breadcrumbs, sugar and ground cinnamon. Fry slightly and stir good until crumbs are hot. Don´t give it color when frying.
