Sunday's Supper January 11th, 2015

Okay, it's a pop quiz today! Who can name these (not very tasty looking) items, which are slowly simmering in water as we speak, and which will form the main component of today's dinner?

Hint: They are supposed to be "zeppelin" shaped but I didn't do a very good job of that!

Wow, that's a mouthful CraigC!

But no.... (though it could be that your dish is a variation - what's in it?)

It is a German potato dumpling that we have with Sauerbraten. It does have a herbed bread cube stuffing. At least my family uses this stuffing.

Well, this was certainly a potato dumpling, but the stuffing is entirely different.

Having just attempted to eat it, I can now declare it absolutely revolting! Had to throw most of it out after a couple of bites! My brother is manfully trying to finish his, but he won't mind if I never make it again - and there is no danger of that!

One of my favorite things to do with the extra dumplings, I purposely make, is slicing them 1/2" thick and frying them in butter the next morning for breakfast. They go great with eggs. I believe many Hispanic cultures make a version, Papa Rellena.

Well with your stuffing, rather than the pork mince stuffing that was in my ones, that sounds perfectly okay.

Sorry they didn't come out as you had expected, Katy. That's disappointing.

This afternoon's dinner (and maybe lunch, too) will be leftover Zuppa Toscana and garlic bread.
