The most popular potato dish in Lithuania are stuffed potato dumplings or zeppelins. Why such a name? The researchers of Lithuanian dishes claim that just at the time when light gas-filled air machines - zeppelins appeared in Lithuania, stuffed potato dumplings with meat or cottage cheese also appeared.
It is a very satiating meal. As soon as Lithuanian housewives are about to cook zeppelins, they produce a lot of them for a few days. Meat is added on the potato disc of dough, which is hidden when the palms are closed. The zeppelins are traditionally cooked during the cool season, when the basements are full of fresh, delicious potatoes.
