DIRECTIONS

  • Salt bread cubes.
  • Lightly whisk together milk and eggs.
  • Pour milk-egg mixture over bread cubes.
  • Stir until moistened, cover and let stand 30 minutes.
  • Mince bacon and sausage.
  • Fry bacon.
  • Saute onion in butter, adding parsley and chives (this is a"to taste" option).
  • Bring the beef stock to a gentle boil.
  • Add bacon, sausage, and onion mixture to soaked bread mixture.
  • Sprinkle with flour.
  • The mixture should be thick enough to form into 8-12 dumplings (This is done by hand, scoop up a portion of the mixture and press into a ball.) Drop one dumpling into broth and cook about 12 minutes.
  • The dumplings should rise to the top when they are done.
  • Cut the first dumpling open and check to make sure it is of the proper consistency.
  • If it is too hard, add more egg-milk mixture.
  • If it is too soft and falls apart, add flour.
  • Add remaining dumplings as space allows, cooking approximately 12 minutes each.
  • Knödel are served either in broth or over Sauerkraut.
