Bavarian Semmel Knoedel (Bread Dumplings)
photo by FoodieWife
- Ready In:
- 8 hard French rolls (one loaf French bread)
- 2 eggs, whisked
- 1 cup whole milk, scalded
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 large handful fresh parsley, chopped
- Slice the bread into 1/4 inch thickness.
- In a large bowl, add the bread slices, whisked egg, fresh parsley and kosher salt.
- Scald the milk to be very hot, but not boiling. Pour that over the bread mixture, cover with a towel or lid and allow to soak for a few minutes.
- When the milk has cooled to be a safe temperature for your hands, mix the bread mixture until clumped together. Don't over mix, though! You want all of the ingredients to bind together. If the mixture is too dry, add a little more scalding milk.
- With wet hands, form into six balls.
- Chill for 15-30 minutes (or overnight).
- In a pot of salted boiling water, cook for 15-20 minutes.
- This makes a perfect side dish with a stew that has a rich gravy.
- For leftover dumplings, slice like cooked potatoes. Fry in some bacon and onion, until lightly browned and pour a whisked egg over. Delicious!
