Semmelknoedel (Bread Dumplings)
My Bavarian Oma made these large dumplings to accompany roast pork or game dishes, any meat with gravy, or with mushrooms in a creamy sauce. Serve one dumpling alongside your dish, and cover with a little gravy.
My mother was one of the best cooks I ever knew. When she made stews we mostly found dumplings in them. We never ate things from packages or microwaves and you sure could taste what food was. That's the only way I cook today - I don't use any electronic gadgets to cook with except an electric stove.
Whether you're an old pro or brand new to the joys of pierogi, I hope you give these easy, cheesy dumplings a try.
Pierogi (Polish Dumplings)
This recipe has been a family favorite passed on from generation to generation. We traditionally make these for Christmas, but they can be made for any special event. There's some work involved, but the outcome is rewarding! After the perogies have boiled, they can be fried in some butter and onions or served with sour cream.
Mom's Simple Dumplings
As a kid I begged my mom to make chicken and dumplings all the time. Now I swear by this simple recipe too!
Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings
This is an easy slow cooker recipe that cooks while you are at work! It is wonderful on a cold, snowy day. I have four children who are picky eaters, and they LOVE this! Enjoy!
Haluski - Cabbage and Noodles
Egg noodles with cooked chopped cabbage and onions - a great ethnic dish!
German Spaetzle Dumplings
Traditional German dumplings. You can also mince a few pieces of bacon in a pan, and heat the cooked spaetzle in the bacon drippings-only omit the butter, if preparing recipe with bacon.
Real Homemade Tamales
I had been looking for a Tamale recipe for years. One day I went to the international market and stood in the Mexican aisle till a woman with a full cart came by. I just asked her if she knew how to make Tamales. This is her recipe with a few additions from me. The pork can be substituted with either chicken or beef. This is great served with refried beans and a salad.
