    Hi Everyone! When I was little my mothers Aunt used to come and make a kettle of Clayzels(not sure of spelling but that is how it it pronounced) They were like a heavy dumpling of some kind. She was from norway so I think it was from there. I know this is a shot in the dark but thought I would put it out there. Have a fun weekend everyone!

    My DH's parents are from Austria and they make a dumpling out of potatos (both raw and mashed together). If this sounds like what you are referring to let me know and I will give you recipe. ;-)

    My mom used to make Kumle (koomlah) When we didnt have ham in the house, she made potato pancakes this same way, but fried them in a cast iron skillet with butter. She would whip up a big batch, and save half in the refrigerator for breakfast the next morning.
    Is this one similar?
    Cook up a small picnic ham. Save the water.
    Dice up 10 lbs potatoes in a meat grinder. Chop up the ham and dice through the meat grinder. Chop up the onion very fine. Add the onion, 1 TBSP salt, 1 TBSP baking powder to the potato/ham mixture. Roll in flour to make a patty. Boil the ham water. Drop the potato patties into the water and cook for 20 min. Serve with butter.
    Norwegian and proud of it.

    "Clayzels' and 'Spaetzles' would sound an awful lot alike if spoken with a Norwegian accent. (First DMIL was a native)

    My MIL was of German descent and she made a dumpling like this and called it "Clayce". They were a heavy, kind of chewy dumpling and after she cooked them, she put them in a skillet with melted butter. They were great! I always wished I had her recipe, so I, too, hope someone posts a recipe. She made the dumplings semi-round and about 2" in diameter and they did not have a filling.
