Bread dumplings or Semmelknödel as we call them in Germany are a specialty of the Bohemian, Austrian and Southern German cuisine but are quite popular in many other areas of Germany as well.
Both my grannies as well as my mum used prepare them for us to accompany dishes like roast pork, roast beef, mushroom cream sauces ,Kassler chops with sauerkraut and gravy or any other dishes that came with a delicious sauce or gravy.
I like many different kinds of dumplings some of them like the yeast dumplings are more suited for desert dishes while other like the potato dumpling and the Semmelknödel are definitely perfect accompaniments for savory gravies. This dumpling recipe is very easy to prepare and quite foolproof. I served the dumplings together with a mixed mushroom cream sauce and we all loved it.
