Recipe by Normaone
Here is a nifty little side dish. It's inexpensive and really quite easy to prepare. Plus, they can be boiled in advance and sauteed just before serving. These little dumplings are kind of like spaetzle and would go nicely with anything grilled. You could also combine them with any number of sauces: tomato, cheese, etc. I hope you enjoy them!

Dumplings looked appealing, but tasted very bland. Hubby agreed. If I were to try again I would have to alter the recipe quite a bit to add more flavor. Recipe definitely has potential, though.

- 1 large egg
