nutmeg and salt. Add the egg yolks and mix thoroughly. Place about a
quarter of a cup of flour in a dish. Form dumplings the size of a golf ball
and roll in the flour to coat. Drop the dumplings into slow-boiling water,
cook uncovered for 10 minutes. Remove the dumplings with a slotted spoon
and drain. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a medium skillet, add bread crumbs
and stir while heating until browned. roll the drained dumplings in bread
crumbs. Serve alongside goulash.

NOTE: If first dumpling falls apart in the boiling water, add flour to
the dumpling mixture until dumplings hold togedther in the water.
