IMBB #25 Stale Bread: Napkin Olive Dumplings

Derrik at www.obsessionwithfood.com (And Wine) chose >Give Us This Day Yesterday’s Bread for this month’s IMBB.

I keep always stale bread in the freezer, to use it for Frikadellen – meatballs or add it to pumpernickel, which needs stale bread. But this time I decided to use it for a dish I’ve never made before. In the North of Germany ServiettenknödelNapkin dumplings are not very common. But for this event I want to give

Napkin Olive Dumplings

a try.

You can eat it as a side dish (e.g. together with meat) or as a main dish with vegetables.
