Ingredients

  • 1 kg floury potatoes
  • 330 g Flour
  • 250 g Gorgonzola cheese
  • 65 g walnuts broken
  • 30 g Butter
  • 3 tbsp double cream
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 180 C.
  • Put the unpeeled potatoes in a large saucepan, cover with salted water and bring to the boil.
  • Simmer briskly for 15-20 minutes until tender, drain and then peel and cut in quarters.
  • Place on a baking sheet and put it in the oven to dry for about 5 minutes
  • Pass the potatoes through a coarse sieve set over a large bowl – it work’s better than a ricer.
  • Quickly stir in the flour and egg and then season with salt. When well blended, cover with a clean tea towel to retain the warmth.
  • Take a little of the potato mixture and roll into a long thin sausage.
  • Slice into pieces about 2.5cm long and using a gnocchi paddle or a fork, roll the gnocchi with your thumb and then roll it the other way to make ridges on the side.
  • Continue until you have used up all the potato mixture. Place the prepared gnocchi on well-floured trays as you work.
  • In the mean time, bring a large pot of salted water to the boil.
  • Drop in the gnocchi in batches.
  • Simmer briskly for about 5 minutes until they rise to the surface.
  • Drain gently using a wire scoop, and transfer to a warm serving dish.
  • While the gnocchi are cooking, melt the gorgonzola and butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat.
  • When completely melted add the cream and boil for 1 minute.
  • Add the cheese mixture to the gnocchi and gently stir to mix.
  • Sprinkle with broken walnuts and serve immediately.
