My husband and I spent part of our honeymoon in Bavaria. These are THE dumplings that we ate. Don't be fooled--I thought that the recipe looked a little weird, but it is perfect. Follow the instructions exactly, and you've got Oktoberfest in the making!
My mother used to make these and I loved them! This is the first recipe I've found (I never got hers) that tasted right! I followed the instructions exactly (except I did make eight medium-sized dumplings instead of four huge ones)and they turned out perfectly! I didn't have to add the extra bread crumbs. Delicious comfort food! Thanks!
Oct 26 2008: These are great. I sauteed the onions with 3 strips of bacon diced. Delicious. Update: Nov 13 2008. I recently made this recipe again as a side dish for my parents 50th wedding anniversary party. We had about 70 guests 90% of whom were German immigrants. We served these dumplings as a side dish with traditional German rouladen. We got rave reviews and many requests for the recipe. Thank you! As I mentioned previously I did add fried bacon to the recipe. I had to multiply the recipe by 8 and made them in 2 batches. I flash froze them on a cookie sheet and then put them in freezer bags until the party. They defrosted wonderfully and only needed a quick reheating before serving. I still have about 2 dozen left in the freezer and can't wait to serve them again.
This is the recipe poster. Thanks for the positive reviews! This is my first recipe on allrecipes and I'm so happy to know people tried it!! By the way... not sure how they calculate the number of servings in the summary. Eyeball it and get however many dumplings you get but usually this recipe makes me around 8.
I made this to accompany the Sauerbraten I was making for Christmas dinner and they were fantastic! I followed the recipe exactly as written and I was a little afraid that they'd be a bit bland but the weren't at all and they were wonderful with the gravy from the Sauerbraten. The only thing I did change was making a bunch of smaller dumplings instead of the 4 large ones.
These turned out exactly like my mother-in-law's. I will flavor them a little bit more next time and also use 2 loafs of bread as this only made about 7 knoedels. I will make again for sure and thanks so much to the submitter as I now have written directions rather than just a verbal recipe from my m-i-l.
I tried this last night and the first batch came out terribly. Even though the test ball stayed together the rest of them completely fell apart and I had to throw out the entire batch. I addded half a cup of bread crumbs to the remaining mixture and tried again using low low heat. They stayed together for the most part and people ate them but I don't think I'd make them again.
