DIRECTIONS

  • Place water and 1 1/2 teaspoons salt in a stockpot and bring to a rolling boil.
  • Melt the butter in a large sauté pan or skillet; toast bread cubes until golden.
  • Remove from heat and reserve.
  • Add the remaining ingredients together in a bowl.
  • Fold cooled bread cubes into the dumpling batter.
  • Shape dumplings into 1 1/2" by 3" cylinders and gently drop into boiling water (this works better if hands are slightly moistened).
  • Reduce heat to a low simmer; cover and cook 20 minutes (turn dumplings over at ten minutes).
  • Remove from pot with slotted spoon and drain.
  • Slice into 1/2" thick disks with a knife and serve immediately.
