I've been making these dumplings for more than 30 years. They are one of our family's "all-time favorite" dumplings. You can serve these with any gravy of your choice.

How to Make Wedding Dumplings

Step-by-Step

  1. Place a sheet of wax paper onto one 15x10x1-inch baking sheet. Set baking sheet aside.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the eggs.
  3. Add the milk, salt, and nutmeg; stir thoroughly.
  4. Add the torn bread, and mix thoroughly with your hands.
  5. Shape bread mixture into 7-8 medium sized balls (each about 2-1/2" to 3" in size).
  6. Place the dumplings onto the baking sheet, that was lined with the wax paper.
  7. Add vegetable oil to a deep fryer, and set the deep fryer to 375 degrees.
  8. When the deep fryer is hot enough, add the dumplings, and fry them until they're a golden brown (about 5-7 minutes) and turning them once or twice. (Don't worry if the dumplings look a bit dark in color. Once you cook them in boiling water, the dumplings lighten up a bit in color).
  9. Place the fried dumplings on paper toweling.
  10. To cook the dumplings: Place dumplings in a large pot of boiling water; and cook them uncovered for 20 minutes. Remove and serve the dumplings with a gravy of your choice.
  11. To freeze the dumplings: After the dumplings are deep-fried, and placed on paper towels; cool them to room temperature. Place the cooled dumplings in (freezer-type) Ziploc bags, and store them in the freezer. (You can freeze the dumplings for several months).
  12. Note: Thaw the frozen dumplings completely, before cooking them in boiling water.
