Czech Knedlky (Dumplings)
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 2 eggs
- Optional: water, salt
- Place flour into a medium size mixing bowl.
- Make a well in the center and add the two eggs
- Optional: Add in 1/2 teaspoon salt
- With a fork, begin mixing the flour into the two eggs from the center of the well pulling the flour into the center section mixing it with the eggs until all the flour has been mixed in.
- Once mixed, the dough should be firm, but not sticky; and not dry - but rather hold together in a ball. If the dough is too sticky add a little more flour; if it is too dry, mix in a tablespoon of water at a time until correct consistency is reached. Do not over mix.
- Allow the ball of dough to rest for 5 minutes.
- While dough is resting, bring water to boil in a large pot or saucepan. For added flavor, add 1-2 teaspoons of chicken bullion to the water.
- Once the water is boiling, use a standard teaspoon to drop knedliky - dumplings into the water. The amount of dough for each dumpling should be rounded and fill about half of the teaspoon. Continue dropping knedliky into water until all the dough has been used.
- Cover pot with lid and allow dumplings to cook for about 10-15 minutes or until done. After 10 minutes take one out and test for doneness. Length of time to cook will depend on size of dumplings.
- These can be served with a roast (traditional Czech style), added to a soup, or used in chicken and dumplings.
