Title: Austrian bread dumplings
Categories: Ethnic, Breads
Yield: 6 Servings
4 oz Dry bread, diced
1/2 oz (1 Tbsp) butter or lard
1/2 c Milk
3 oz (3/4 cup) flour
Salt and pepper
1 tb Chopped fresh herbs
1 Tbsp chopped fresh herbs (parsley, chervil, marjoram) -
optional, but a great improvement
You will need a frying pan, a large and a small bowl, and a saucepan
of water or soup. Fry the diced bread lightly in the fat in a frying
pan. Meanwhile, mix the egg and the milk in a small bowl. Tip the
contents of the frying pan into a large bowl, and pour the egg and
milk over all. Stir in the flour, and season with salt and pepper.
Add the herbs, if using. You may need more milk to make a soft dough.
Allow it to stand for 1/2 an hour.
Dip your hand into cold water and roll the mixture into a dozen small
balls. Put a pot of salted water on to boil, if there isn't a
simmering soup pot waiting. Drop little balls of dough into the
boiling salted water or the soup. Poach them for 10 to 15 minutes,
until they are light and firm and well risen.
Yield: 12 dumplings Time: 1 hour
Notes: You may include chopped fried bacon or cubed pork cracklings
in the mixture. Leaving out flour will result in a lighter dumpling.
