Bavarian bread dumplings

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
10 To 12 slices stale bread
1 teaspoon Salt
1½ cup Lukewarm milk
3 slices Bacon, diced
1 small Onion, chopped
1 tablespoon Minced parsley
1 teaspoon Marjoram
2 Eggs
Breadcrumbs if needed

Cut bread or rolls, with crusts, into small pieces, put in a bowl and sprinkle with salt. Pour lukewarm milk over bread and let soak for an hour. If there is excess milk in bowl at that time, pour it off. Fry bacon in skillet with chopped onion until bacon is almost crisp and onion is soft and golden. Toss in parsley and marjoram and saute 3 or 4 minutes. Add bacon, onion and herbs to bread mixture. Mix eggs in thoroughly. If dumpling batter is to soft to form, add breadcrumbs, a tablespoon at a time, until batter is firm enough. With wet hands or two wet tablespoons, form a test dumpling. Drop into boiling salted water and simmer, partially covered for 20 minutes.
