Himmel’s German Bread Dumplings 

Pretzel Bread sliced thin 1 loaf

4 eggs

2 cups buttermilk

Salt & pepper

1 teaspoon parsley finely chopped


Take one loaf of pretzel bread slice thin, place in mixing bowl. Pour on buttermilk so bread can absorb (slightly warm the buttermilk), add salt & pepper and parsley. Mix thoroughly. Shape into balls and place into salted boiling water for 20 minutes. They will be done when they float.

Himmel’s Gravy

1 cup Seasonal wild mushrooms

2 tbs Shallot (minced)

1 tbs butter

Salt and pepper

Heavy cream 1 cup



Cook mushrooms and shallot until translucent. Add heavy cream. Roll 1 pat of butter into a little ball and roll into the flour. Then add the butter ball into the mushroom and stir until it thickens. Remove from heat, plate dumplings with a spoonful of gravy on top.
