Bread dumplings are an absolute traditional dish in this country, which is at home in several regions and is one of the most popular autumn and winter recipes, especially in the colder season. Bread dumplings, also called pretzel dumplings, are usually served with hearty meat dishes or as a vegetarian version with mushrooms. With bread dumplings it is like with many other dishes from the simple German cuisine, they are made with few, usually available at home, ingredients and show once again, what can be gotten out of old food. The ingredient list is surprisingly short, because only old rolls, eggs, milk, parsley and spices are needed. In my kitchen, the rolls from the day before are always diced and stored in a paper bag, and when the bag is full, they are made into delicious bread dumplings. You can also freeze the dumplings very well and thus have some delicious stock to eat, even on stressful days.
