Freeze Dumplings – That’s How it Works

Freeze dumplings: Prepare individually

To prevent the dumplings from sticking together when freezing, it is best to freeze them individually first.

  1. For example, use a baking sheet or another freezer-safe plate.
  2. Place the individual dumplings on the tray and put them in the freezer for an hour.
  3. Then take the dumplings out of the freezer and put them in a freezer bag. Plastic bags with zip closures are best for this. This way the dumplings cannot fall out of the bag in the freezer.
  4. The dumplings can be stored in the freezer for up to four months.
  5. The same applies to the dumpling dough: as soon as it has cooled down, form dumplings and repeat the steps above.

Prepare frozen dumplings

If you want to make frozen dumplings, you don’t have to thaw them.

  1. Get the dumplings out of the animal freezer.
  2. Put them in boiling, lightly salted, or sugared water and let the dumplings cook.
  3. Once the dumplings float to the top, let the dumplings cook in gently boiling water for another 15 to 30 minutes.
  4. Fry the breadcrumbs in butter and roll the drained dumplings in it.
  5. It is important that the dumplings are properly frozen. Otherwise they stick together and you can no longer get them apart.
