At our hotel in San Martino we had the opportunity to attend a cooking class. In groups we prepared these simple bread dumplings. They were very tasty and took only minutes to put together. Enjoy!
8 slices of stale bread (chopped)
1/3 cup browned onion
5 bacon strips (cooked and chopped)
3 tablespoons milk
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons flour (add more as needed for consistency)
1) Combine all ingredients together in a bowl and knead together with hands until it forms the consistency of paste that no longer sticks to hands (add more flour if needed).
2) With damp hands, roll mixture into balls slightly larger than golf balls.
3) Fry balls in butter on stove top or boil in broth.
