Trentino Bread dumplings

(Canederli alla Trentina)

Method:

First of all, make a good stock.

Put the stale bread to soak in milk then mix well, preferably with your hands.

Finely chop the onion and fry it in oil with diced mortadella, speck and lucanica.

Add them to bread with the eggs, parsley, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Mix well. Lastly, add the bread crumbs. Wet your hands and form the dough into balls of equal size.

Strain the stock, bring to a boil and drop the canederli in one at a time. Once they have risen to the surface keep on the boil for another 10 minutes. 

Strain and serve sprinkled with grated Grana cheese.
