My friend, Rich Foltz and his wife made one for me and it was absolutely delicious. When I was a kid, all of 15, Rich's mother made this for family dinner and I always thought of it. Try this and u will love it. Thank you

There two types of bread dumplings both have the same name but are made differently. The first one uses butter, egg, nutmeg, breadcrumbs and baking powder. These are then rolled and simmered in water for approximately 20 minutes. There is no need to place them in bags nor cook them for an hour. The second one, is my favorite, they contain bacon, onion, butter milk, stale bread or rolls, eggs and parsley. These also are simmered for 20 minutes. Both are very tasty but the second one is tastier especially sliced and sauteed the next day. My mother-in-law made the second one quite often and would serve it with Hungarian goulash, she was from Austria and would some of the most wonderful dishes. Luckily I learned many of them and make them today.
