Ingredients (for 10 dumplings)
– 500g of old Bread
– 150ml of Milk
– 60g of ground Wild Asparagus or 2g of roughly ground Wild Asparagus Spice
– 30g of Prosciutto cut into small pieces
– 1 clove of Garlic
– Olive Oil or Wild Asparagus Olive Oil for a full tasting experience
– Tear the bread into pieces and place it in a bowl. Pour some warm milk over the bread and let it stay for 10 minutes to soak up the milk. Break the Asparagus into small pieces about 1cm long and keep breaking them down until you get to the bottom hard part. Cut the Prosciutto into small pieces and finely chop the clove of Garlic.
– Boil some water in a saucepan and put the small pieces of Asparagus inside, cook for 3 minutes and drain them well.
– Heat the oil in a pan and fry the Prosciutto for about 2 minutes, then add the Asparagus and roast for another 2 minutes. Add some Garlic at the end until it releases its smell, that’s how you know when you’re finished frying.
– Pour the roasted mixture inside the bowl of Bread. Salt as you wish and wait for the mixture to cool off a little bit, then stirr and smash an egg on top of it.
– Mix it well with the Bread by using your hands, that’s how you get the Dumplings mixture ready.
– Using your hands shape the mixture into medium-sized Dumplings, it should be enough for 10 Bread Dumplings.
– Boil water in a large saucepan and add some salt. Using a scoop carefully place the Dumplings one by one inside the boiling water and boil them for 10-12 minutes on medium heat. Then take them out of the saucepan with a skimmer.
Replace the Prosciutto with Bacon or Pancetta or just have some without it. Be careful when adding salt, the Prosciutto is salty by itself.
