Source: Roberta Brisson - This recipe comes from another of my dad’s niece.

Sift flour into a bowl and make a well in the center. Add about 1 teaspoon sugar, ½ ounce crumbled yeast and ½ cup warm milk. Let set until yeast bubbles up. Then add 1 tablespoon salt, 1 whole egg and add1 egg yolk. Mix until dough is smooth. Sometimes, it is necessary to add more milk. Let dough raise and then put on a well greased bread board, and divide into dumplings, about the size of large oblong oranges. Shape well and place in a pot of boiling water.

Some people like cubed bread in these dumplings. If you add cubed bread, add it before you let the dough rise. You can also lightly fry bread before you let the dough rise. Then place it in the dough. I would not suggest doing either of these options until you are proficient in making dumplings.

Use a large pot and add a lot of water. When dumplings have been boiling 10 minutes, turn over and boil and additional 10 minutes on the other side.

Dumplings should take around 20 minutes to cook. When dumplings are done, remove from water. Let cool on a rack before cutting into slices with a string.
