How to make it

  • Mix the first three ingredients, let
  • stand for 10 minutes. Mix the warm milk, egg, salt, yeast mixture and
  • flour. Add the bread cubes. Knead the resulting dough just as you
  • would when making bread. Let the dough rest in a warm place to rise.
  • It should double in about 2 hours. Knead again; divide into 3 long
  • rolls, each about 1 1/2 " thick. Let rise another 1/2 hour. Drop the
  • rolls of dough, one at a time, into a large kettle of boiling water.
  • Boil gently for about 15 minutes. Remove with slotted spoons and
  • place on a buttered platter. Keep warm. When ready to serve, slice
  • the rolls into individual slices by using a length of thread. Loop it
  • around one dumpling and pull tight to slice off a piece about 2"
  • thick. (This is the fun part! You can get pretty good at this
  • garrotting if you practice!!) You should end up with about 2 dozen
  • slices. The cookbook says, "These freeze well - steam before serving."

    I visited Prague two summers ago. I was smitten by these amazing dumplings that looked like slices of little french baguettes in every bowl of paprikash, ghoulash etc that I ordered. I never thought I'd ever find a recipe to duplicate those tasty dumplings. So glad I found yours! I made them and they turned out every bit as good as the ones I had in Prague...and just as pretty!! Thanks so much for sharing!!

    I made this recipe. They turned out good except they didn't look like the picture. The dough was quite sticky and the rolls were lumpy and sagged in the second rise. Should I have added more flour? They sure are tasty.

    I tried this recipe several days ago, and I was very pleased. They were fluffy and tasty. Also they took a little time but well worth it. I did mine with some whole wheat flour and they turned out great. I will be making them again.
