Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, farina, baking powder, and salt. Mix well.
  2. Add the butter in small pieces. Crumble the flour mixture with your fingertips to form a coarse meal.
  3. Add the eggs and milk. Stir until the batter is smooth.
  4. Bring the salted water to a boil. Using two tablespoons, drop the batter into the boiling water. Cover, and simmer for 8 minutes. Cook 6 to 8 at a time.
  5. Remove cooked dumplings from the water with a slotted spoon and place them in a buttered ovenproof dish. Keep warm in a slow 250°F oven until all the dumplings and the topping are done.
  6. To prepare the topping, melt the butter in a skillet. Saute the sliced onions until they are light brown and starting to crisp. Remove from heat.
  7. Cover the dumplings with the fried onions. Serve accompanied by a bowl of sour cream, if you wish. Yield: About 12 to 15 dumplings.
  8. Leftover halushky are delicious fried in butter or bacon fat.
