    Makes: 72 gnocchi approximately

    • 700g floury cooking potatoes, such as maris piper
    • 3/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1 large egg
    • 250g plain flour
    • 1 pinch ground nutmeg

    Prep:30min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Ready in:1hr15min 

    1. Boil unpeeled potatoes until tender, about 25-35 minutes. Test with a fork. Drain. When cool enough to handle, peel and press through a potato ricer. Spread onto a baking tray and let cool.
    2. Work potatoes with salt, egg, flour and nutmeg to form a dough. Form into two rolls, just over 1cm in diameter. Cut each roll into 3cm pieces. Form each piece into oval gnocchi and press gently with the prongs of a fork.
    3. Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil. Reduce the heat, so the water is just simmering. Cook gnocchi in simmering water until they float. Remove and drain well.
