This recipe was passed down to me from my German born grandmother. She came to this country in the 1930s. She worked in a country club as a cook and was quite an accomplished one at that. This is one of her german recipes passed down to me. This is so good with pot roast and gravy!

Prep:

1 Hr 10 Min

Cook:

20 Min

Ingredients

5 c
diced stale sourdough bread or french bread
1 c
milk
2
eggs
1 Tbsp
flour
1 tsp
salt

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Put the diced up bread in a bowl. Bring the milk to a boil and pour over the bread. Cover with foil or if you are using a pan, put the lid over the pan for 1 hour.
2
Beat the two eggs together in a cup. Add to the bread mixture after the hour is up and also now add the tablespoon of flour and the teaspoon of salt and mix all together. If mixture is too soft, add some breadcrumbs.
3
Shape the bread into balls about the size of your palm or about the size of a baseball and drop each ball into a pan of simmering salted water (I just add 1 teas of salt to the water) Put the lid on and leave covered for 20 minutes as it continues to simmer. NEVER LIFT THE LID during the cooking time.
4
Take dumplings out of the water and serve with your favorite gravy over them. This will make 6 or 7 dumplings.
