Ingredients

  • 2 white bread rolls
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 bacon strips, finely chopped
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped parsley
  • 1 tsp dried marjoram
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • 1 large egg
  • All purpose flour, as needed

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 275°F (140°C). Cut the rolls into small cubes. Spread on a baking sheet. Bake about 30 minutes, until crisp.

  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the bacon and onion and cook about 7 minutes. Stir in the herbs and let cool.

  3. Beat the milk and egg together in a bowl. Add the bread cubes and bacon mixture and stir well. The dough should be firm enough to shape into dumplings; if it is too soft, stir in flour as needed.

  4. Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil over high heat. With damp hands, form the dough into 8 dumplings. Add the dumplings to the water and cook about 10 minutes, or until cooked through. Drain carefully and serve hot.

@Lindamarlena - Thanks very much for your question. We would suggest using any kind of roll that is made from white flour and has no toppings. A kaiser roll or Italian would be perfect.

What doe you mean by two white rolls. What kind and how much do each weigh? I am always concerned about just what an ingredient is and how much it is. Is this a particular kind of roll like a kaiser or Italian etc. Thank you for your courtesy.
