This recipe is very nearly the same as Acadian(french from Canada's Maritime Provinces)"fricot" which is traditionaly seasoned with summer savory instead of poultry seasoning.

We met my husband's Maritime family and they made Fricot for the party and these funny potato balls with a pork filling. They made us put sugar on the potato thingys and it was all wonderful! What a lovely evening we spent with the French side of the family...
