German bread dumplings, called Semmelknödel in German, are a delicious addition to meals that include gravy... and are actually easy to make!

To make them, you need some hardened crusty rolls. Alternatively, you can also use French bread or baguette.

First, cut the hard rolls into small pieces and place them into a bowl.

Heat milk in a small pot on the stove until it is just about to boil.

Then pour the hot milk over the bread in the bowl, give it a stir, and let the bread sit for around 15 minutes until it's soft.

Meanwhile, chop the parsley...

... chop and sauté the onion...

...and crack the eggs into a small bowl and whisk them together.

When the bread is done soaking, add the onions, parsley, eggs, salt, pepper, and nutmeg to the bowl.

Mix everything together until it's well combined.

Now use the mixture to form 8-10 dumplings in the palm of your hand. If the mixture is too hard, add a little more milk. If it's too sticky, add some breadcrumbs.

Bring water to a light boil in a large pot. Add the bread dumplings and let them simmer for around 20 minutes.

Serve the dumplings as a side to a roast with gravy or with a mushroom sauce for vegetarians. Enjoy!
