Tips & Recommendations

  • Serve the bacon dumplings in a hearty meat soup, as a side dish with roast pork (loin) and as a main dish with salad.
  • Use dry dumpling bread and let the mixture soak well.
  • If you use a spoon or ladle to form the dumplings the surface will be smoother and the dumplings will not fall apart so easily.
  • If you prefer, you can roast the bacon before adding it to the mixture.
