Mr. Big Food is cooking up a bouře! [Czech speaking relatives– this is what an on-line translator told me “storm” was in Czech. Is this correct? I highly doubt it.]
|Fifty bread dumplings in the works|
|Steamed bread dumplings|
|Ready to eat bread dumplings|
It never ceases to amaze me just how frugal those old folks were. Nothing went to waste, especially stale bread.
When I post the recipe– which I will after I have some photos of them doing what God intended them to do– I’ll include the correct name. For now, I just want to remark that, while a bit time consuming, these are easy to make. Fry up some bacon, fry up some cubed stale bead slices in the bacon fat. Crumble the bacon and combine the two. Put some yeast in warm water and heat up some milk. Put those together, add a couple beaten eggs. Start adding flour. Then add the bacon mixture. Shape into golf ball sized balls. Let rise. Pop them in a steamer on top of boiling water.
They freeze well, too.
