    3 3/4 cups mashed potatoes
    1/2 tsp salt 1 beaten egg
    2 3/4 cup flour (more, if needed)
    11-12 slices of thick bacon
    2 medium onions, diced
    1/4 tsp ground allspice
    Fry bacon,onion,and allspice. Set aside. Mix potatoes,salt,egg,and flour to make a stiff dough. Roll out dough and cut into 6" to 8" squares or corcles and put reserved mixture in center. Fold over to make a patty and seal edges firmly. Drop in salted boiling water and boil 5 to 8 minutes. Take out,cool; then boil again for 5 min. Serve with cream. These are great the next day, fried in butter!!

    The name Krap Kraker made me laugh. Maybe it sounds different when they pronounce it. Gosh, I sure sound immature!

    Ha Ha. Yes the Swedes pronounce it like "crup crocker"; nothing much like the real spelling.

    My Grandmother used to make these, she took the recipe with her to the other side. I have been searching for this recipe for 20+ years. I have asked hundreds of people, as many Chef as I could and all looked at me as if I had 4 heads. Thank You! My Grandmother also referred to them as Swedish Canon Balls, only thing different I can see is she used salt pork instead of bacon. I am so happy! Thank You! Nan

    It's Swedish Kroppkakor !  My parents were both from Sweden and we used to make them at home when I was growing up,  We used salt pork in ours too.  Now my husband and I still enjoy them because there is a store in our town that still makes and sells them.  ( You have to develop a taste for them since they look like dirty snowballs.)
