    Easy and delicious. I would definitely attempt to make my dumplings smaller next time as these babies are HEAVY. Sauteed them with veggie butter and caramelized onions. YUM!

    Your Oma nailed it with this recipe. My German born mother who was born in 1910 and died in 2007 used to make these all the time, but never used a recipe and never shared the technique. These tasted just like hers, she always put a fried bread cube in the center. Thank you for posting.

    My grandmother makes this recipe once a year and it has always been my favorite! We are german and have always called it Knadle. She cuts the dumplings up into large bite size peices and adds them to some buttery carmelized onions.

    These were good. I think that next time I make these I will get a little more creative with them. I fried the dumplings in butter and onions after boiling them. This added a nice touch. Thanks for sharing!
