When it comes to versatility and adaptability, our Fresh Skillet Gnocchi are unbeatable. What restaurant owners and chefs love about them is how convenient they are, how fast they can be prepared, and how well they pair with other ingredients and sauces. You may be thinking, but what sets Gnocchi Sticks apart from regular Gnocchi?

Gnocchi Sticks are elongated and narrow, containing the same flavour and texture as regular gnocchi, yet bearing more resemblance to fries. This makes our Sticks a potential fries replacement, a fun side dish or appetizer, and a finger food that’s ideal for dipping into a delicious sauce. What’s more, kids love Gnocchi Sticks, making them well-suited for an array of family-friendly menu options.

Can sticks be used as a regular gnocchi replacement in your favourite gnocchi recipes? Absolutely, yes. The difference in the result will be in the overall quantity of gnocchi there is in each individual bite, but the quality remains the same. Some customers prefer larger and thicker foods to enjoy, while others prefer smaller bites and regard them as more satisfying to eat. 

Now let’s look at some recipe ideas that feature our Fresh Skillet Gnocchi Sticks.

Fresh Skillet Gnocchi is prepared the same way as our Sticks, but the gnocchi itself comes in its original, small dumpling shape and style. We also offer a variety of Fresh Potato Gnocchi that you can prepare by boiling for a softer texture than its crispier skillet counterpart.
