DIRECTIONS

  • Slice the rolls into 1/4-inch thickness.
  • Place slices into a large bowl and pour the warm milk over; let soak for 10 minutes.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk the egg with the parsley and season to taste with salt, pepper, and nutmeg.
  • Pour parsley mixture into bread/milk mixture and knead together, then wet your hands and form the dough into four round dumplings.
  • Bring a pot of salted water to a boil.
  • Place dumplings carefully into the water and simmer (do not boil) for 15 minutes, until done.
  • Remove dumplings with a slotted spoon into a colander to drain.
  • Serve with stew or goulash or gravy.
  • Note: You can make Bretzen Knoedel (Bavarian Pretzel Dumplings) by substituting about 2 cups of soft pretzels (large, soft bakery style), for the French rolls.
