Cook potatoes in salted water just until tender; drain.
Refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight.
Peel and grate potatoes.
In a bowl, combine the flour, egg, salt and nutmeg.
Add potatoes and mix until a stiff batter is formed, adding additional flour if necessary.
Slice toasted bread into 24 squares, 1/2 in. each; shape 2 tablespoons of the potato mixture around two bread squares, forming a 2-in.ball.
In a large kettle, bring salted water to a boil; add the test dumpling.
Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until dumpling is no longer sticky in the center.
If test dumpling falls apart during cooking, add the mashed potato flakes to the batter.
Let batter sit for 5 minutes; form remaining dumplings.
Add to boiling water; return to a boil and follow the same cooking procedure.
Remove dumplings with a slotted spoon to a serving bowl.
If desired, drizzle with butter and sprinkle with crumbs.
