We presented this traditional Czech recipe also along with the Chicken Paprikash as they go so well together. However, I think the White Bread Dumplings recipe deserves a separate post. Thank you Jana for sending this recipe!
- 4 cups instantized flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 ½ cups milk
- 4 cups diced stale white bread
Sift flour into a bowl. In another bowl, lightly beat together salt, egg yolks, and milk, and pour into flour. Work dough until it is shiny and does not stick to bowl; cover, and let stand for 1 hour. Work in the bread. With floured hands, shape dough into 3 to 4 rolls, 8 by 2 ½ inches. Bring about 6 quarts of water to a boil in a large pan and put in dumplings, making sure they do not stick to bottom. Cover, and cook for 10 to 15 minutes on each side (20 – 30 min in all). Remove from pan with 2 plates or a large skimmer. Make a cut across the center of 1 dumpling to make sure it is done, and then slice all into ¾-inch pieces with a thin sharp knife or a thread. Arrange slices in a heated bowl. Serves 6 to 8.
This recipe is more for advanced cooks. If you prefer, you can buy the dumplings in your local store in the freezer section (Heinens carry them).
