Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil. Cook potatoes until tender but still firm; about 15 minutes. Drain, cool and mash until smooth.
Combine mashed potato, flour and egg in a large bowl.
Knead the dough until it forms a ball. Cut the dough into quarters then working with one piece at a time on a floured surface roll into a snake about 1 1/2cm thick. Cut lengths into 1cm pieces.
Bring a large saucepan of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook the gnocchi in batches for 3 to 5 minutes or until gnocchi float to the top then cook further 1 minute. Remove with a slotted spoon, drain well and serve with your favourite gnocchi sauce.
I made this for the first time last night (first time ever making gnocchi) and it turned out restaurant quality! I used one white and one red potato, I did have to add about 1/3 cup more flour thoyugh but that may have been because of the size of the potatoes. - 19 Sep 2012
