 Ingredients List

  • 4 c All-purpose flour
  • 1 ts Salt
  • 2 Egg yolks
  • 1 1/2 c Milk
  • 4 c Diced 2-day-old bread


Place flour into a large bowl. In another bowl, lightly beat together salt,
egg yolks and milk and pour into flour. Knead dough until it is shiny. Let
stand for 1 hour. Add the bread to dough and combine well.

With floured hands, shape dough into 4-inch diameter balls or rolls that
measure 8 inches long by 2 1/2 inches in diameter. Slice dough from rolls
about 2 to 3 inches thick. Have 6 quarts of boiling water ready and put in
the dumplings, making sure they do not stick to the bottom by moving them
once with a spatula.

Cover and cook for 20 to 30 minutes. Remove dumplings with a slotted spoon.
Make a cut across the center of one dumpling to make sure it is done, then
slice all dumplings into 1/2-inch to 3/4-inch pieces with a thin sharp
knife. Arrange slices in a heated bowl.

NOTES : To prevent heavy dumplings with soggy bottoms, make sure the liquid
in which they are cooked bubbles gently but continually. For light, fluffy
dumplings, cover the pan and leave it covered until the cooking time is
almost complete. Sudden drafts affect the temperature and can deflate the
dumplings. Note: The prep time does not include the 1 hour standing time
for the dough.
