Mary. If you printed out my mother-in-law's directions for preparing the basic grated potato you are half way there to Bulviniai Cepelinai Kukuliai, or as we say Klatskas. This recipe comes from the Nationality Rooms Cookbook, U of Pittsburgh. The potato mixture : Grate potatoes into cheese cloth (the cotton flour bag works better) and squeeze until almost dry, reserve liquid. starch will settle out. Add egg, flour and some of the starch to potatoes and mix well. Form into 8 round balls and set aside. Mix meat with onion and egg and form into 8 balls. Flatten the potato balls and place meat in center and form the dough around the meat into the shape of zeppelins. Boil in a large kettle of 4-6qts salted water for 30 minutes. Caution: For 40 years, mine fell apart, because I couldn't use flour My husband said his mother never used it. So don't be surprised if they don't hold together! I also prefer to cook my meat mixture first! Sauce: Chop bacon and fry, drain and saute onions. Add sour cream, heat and serve over the zeppelins. I have not used the starch, I have heard of farina or cream of wheat substituted for flour.
