Houskove Knedliky - Czechoslovakian Bread Dumplings

Posted in response to a recipe request. These hearty, dense dumplings are just wonderful served in melted real butter or with brown gravy. A variation might include stuffing them with minced mushrooms and onions sautéed in butter before boiling or forming them into balls instead of cylinders.

ingredients

  • 3 cups water
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 6 slices white bread, slightly stale (crusts trimmed and cut into 1/2-inch cubes)
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup flour
  • 12 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 egg yolks, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons green onions, minced
  • 1 tablespoon parsley, minced
  • 18 teaspoon pepper
  • 12 cup milk (more as needed)

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.
