Hi again TQC, food question here.
My SO's family had me over for christmas eve dinner and they had these dumplings my SO wants me to figure out how to make. They are a German / Eastern European family and the dumplings are kind of like balled up mashed potatos but they are formed and more solid. I am jewish and i thought they were initially similar to matzo balls but not. at. all.

I know you can make them from a package mix (powder and water? Maybe they are instant potato flakes?) but I dont know what they are called, my SO says they are likely Ukranian.

Any ideas?
ETA: they are savory, only had potato flavor-no herbs or protein. They are small fist to baseball sized rounds
ETA 2: Its kartoffel knodel! Thanks TQC You are great!
