Norwegian Potato Dumplings or Norsk Potetball and in some parts of Norway, Raspaball with sauted onions and bacon. (above)
Here is the recipe for Potetball, another traditional food of Norway.

2 cups cold boiled potatoes ground or mashed
1 tablespoon finely minced chives
1-1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground white pepper

mixing bowl except for the flour and oatmeal.

This will make a medium soft batter.
Potato Dumpling Batter
Fill water into a large pot and bring it to a soft boil. Add 1 teaspoon salt. Fill a glass of cold water for dipping your spoon into between forming each dumpling. Form a round ball by using a tablespoon and your hand.
Potetball Cooking in the pot
Place the dumpling carefully into the softly boiling water. When they are all in the water, simmer for 30-35 minutes. Carefully stir the bottom with a long wooden spoon to prevent them from sticking to the bottom.
You will notice I call them both raspeball and raspaball, in some areas they call it just ball, all three ways are correct depending on where you are in Norway.
