Perfectly fluffy typical Austrian:


for 6 servings

250 g dried bread cubes (Semmelwürfel)

1 medium onion, finely diced

60 g butter

200 ml milk

3 Eggs

40 g all purpose-flour

1 Tsp salt

1 Tbsp parsley


Bring water to a boil in a large pot. Meanwhile, in a small pot warm milk and butter until butter has melted. In a medium bowl mix all ingredients until the bread cubes are soft and everything forms a loose homogenous dough. Either form 6 Knoedels with wet hands or place the dough on 30 cm double layered aluminum foil for a Serviettenknoedel (traditionally in a clean dishtowel (Serviette)), roll it up to form a dense sausage and twist the ends to close off. Place the Knoedels into the boiling water and cook for 12 minutes, the Serviettenknoedel should be done in 30 minutes. Unpack the Serviettenknoedel and cut into slices.
