Bring salted water to the boil. Peel the potatoes, wash them and cook approx. 40 minutes until tender.
Finely chop the parsley. Gently clean the mushrooms with a brush and cut the root lugs. Finely chop 70g mushrooms, peel the shallot and chop it finely as well. Melt 10g butter in a pan. Fry the chopped porcini mushrooms and the shallot for 2 minutes. Stir in half of the herbs (parsley and marjoram) and leave to cool down a little bit.

Form the mass into several dumplings, press a hole in each and fill with mushroom mass.
Bring salted water to a boil. Put in the dumplings and let them boil up briefly before reducing the heat. Simmer approx. for 10 minutes.
Cut the rest of the mushrooms into slices. Heat a pan to high temperature, melt clarified butter or vegetable oil in it, add the mushroom slices and fry until golden-brown.
