Deconstructed kroppkaka

A picture named M2
I had some oven roasted butternut leftovers and decided to use it for starch instead of potatoes in the traditional Swedish dumpling dish, kroppkaka. I wanted to serve the filling that is in the dumpling, bacon and onions on the side instead. Came out very good, real Swedish comfort food with a modern twist.

Use wet hands for make small balls of the doe and slowly boil in lightly salted water for 5 minutes and the dumplings float to the surface.
