This week, we are sharing some of our March Click It To Win It contest entries.

With Easter quickly approaching, and in light of the crisis surrounding COVID-19, the Wright County Journal-Press and The Drummer would like to remind readers to continue social distancing and self-quarantine practices throughout the holiday season. We wish you a happy Easter, and good health in the days to come.

This week, we are sharing some of our March Click It To Win It contest entries. The topic was Favorite Easter Meal Recipe, along with a special story or tradition, if there was one.

We hope you find something new to try this year for your Easter celebration.

Mashed  potatoes with Velveeta® cheese melted in them



2 c. flour

2 eggs

1tsp. salt,

1/3 c. water


Set potatoes aside to cool. Mix dough ingredients together until it forms a ball. Let rest, a few minutes. Roll out flat then cut into squares about 3 inches by 3 inches. Put a spoonful of cooled potato mixture on each square.

Fold the dough over the potatoes, and seal closed. When finished you need to put in boiling water( a few at a time) leave in boiling water until they float and then transfer to cold water until they sink. You can serve them now with melted butter.

Our family prefers to fry them in margarine until golden brown, and then eat. This is a family tradition we do only 2 times a year. (Easter & Christmas)

It’s a lot of work preparing  but rewarding when eating.
