BREAD: Cut stale bread rolls into cubes and add to a large mixing bowl.
ONIONS + BACON: Sauté bacon and onions in a large skillet.
MILK: Use a medium saucepan to heat the milk. Don't boil! Set aside.
MELTED BUTTER: Melt butter and add parsley, salt, and pepper.
Making The Dumpling Dough
In a large bowl combine the bread, bacon and onions, seasoned melted butter, warm milk, and eggs. Use a wooden spoon and combine into a dough. TIP: The consistency of the dough should besticky. If the dough isn't thick enough, add plain bread crumbs.
Allow the dough to rest for 15 minutes.
Wet your hands and shape dumplings. Make them into balls about two inches in diameter.
Boiling The Dumplings
In a large, wide pot simmer beef broth and water until hot but not boiling. Use a slotted spoon to place the dumplings into the simmering beef water.
Cook over medium heat until the dumplings rise to the top. About 15-20 minutes.
