Czech style bread dumplings recipe details
|500 g||bread, white or mixed (can be old and dry, or fresh)|
|500 ml||warm milk|
InstructionsCut bread in small squares, put in large bowl, add the eggs, warm milk, salt, pepper, nutmeg and let sit until the bread is soft, 15 minutes.
In the meantime, cut the onion and fry it in a pan with the ham cut in small squares. Add the onions and ham to the bread. Note: if you only use fresh bread, you still need to let it sit as otherwise the gluten doesn’t get set free and the dumpling will not stick.
Then take a fresh and clean linen dish towel, make it wet and wring it out. Place it on the counter and put the dumpling doe on one end of the dish towel. Roll it up. Twist the ends, making sure the dough sits very tight in the towel (you can check this – when you tighten the roll and small water bubbles come out of the linnen, it is tight enough). Close both ends sugar-candy style with cotton kitchen yarn.
Bring a lot of water with salt to boil in a large pot. Once it boils, turn the temperature down so it only simmers. Place dumpling inside, close lid and let sit for an hour.
Take out of pot, unroll, cut in slices and serve with gravy.
