My Bavarian Oma made these large dumplings to accompany roast pork or game dishes, any meat with gravy, or with mushrooms in a creamy sauce. Serve one dumpling alongside your meat, and cover with a little gravy.
Just like my grandma used to make! I have made these several times now. I also like to make the dumplings smaller (I make 8 instead of 4) and cook them on the top of a simmering soup, covering the pot in the last 10 minutes. You really need to use stale bread for best results. I have tried many different breads and potato bread does NOT work! Wheat bread is also iffy. Stick with any stale white bread and you will love these!
Oct 26, 2008: These are great. I sauteed the onions with 3 strips of bacon, diced. Delicious. Update: Nov 13, 2008. I recently made this recipe again as a side dish for my parents 50th wedding anniversary party. We had about 70 guests, 90% of whom were German immigrants. We served these dumplings as a side dish with traditional German rouladen. We got rave reviews, and many requests for the recipe. Thank you! As I mentioned previously, I did add fried bacon to the recipe. I had to multiply the recipe by 8 and made them in 2 batches. I flash froze them on a cookie sheet and then put them in freezer bags until the party. They defrosted wonderfully, and only needed a quick reheating before serving. I still have about 2 dozen left in the freezer, and can't wait to serve them again.
The comforting boiled German potato dumplings known as Kartoffelkloesse are Chef John's latest potato side dish obsession.
A traditional German dumpling or noodle, spaetzle is boiled in water or broth then pan fried in butter and served as a side dish.
The Filipino version of Chinese steamed buns, these are made with a homemade rice flour dough and stuffed with savory shredded chicken, then steamed until light and puffy.
Flat fried buttery dough usually served with cod fish in Jamaica, as a big weekend breakfast, slightly different from the American dumplings.
This is a basic dumpling recipe that you can use in your favorite soup or stew. Mashed potatoes are combined with flour and egg and shaped into dumplings with a single crouton tucked in the center.
