This is one of my favorite meals handed down from my Italian/Czech grandparents to my father to myself. The latter two individuals are still alive, so we're claiming credit for it. (Who's gonna argue?) It rates scary on the health-O-meter, but who cares?! It's delicious! Hey, if you want to go exercise, donate to the IRS or volunteer at your local library to alleviate your guilt, go right ahead. I want you to know that I'm usually very stingy with this recipe. Course, that doesn't mean you'll like it, but that's not MY fault! Oh, and just so you know, these are very firm and dense dumplings, not light and fluffy. We prefer these stick-to-your-bones babies. And each bite you take MUST have a bit of sauer kraut, pork and dumpling on it....it's the LAW. Number of servings is approximate.
