Old Country Dumplings (German Bullets) - 2 Ways

60 mins (prep 30, cooking 30)
9 ingredients
4-6 servings
Warning - this is a real comfort food! My Grandma told me that her German Mother used to make these and not for comfort - it was making a meal out of things they had on hand. If they didn't have any eggs, they used more water. No bacon? They made it without! When I was younger, my family would get together and make up a huge batch of these and we always had soup as well as fried dumplings. I just loved watching my Mom, Aunts and Grandma chop everything and fry up the bacon and onions. They would get kitchen shears and cut the dumplings right into the splashing boiling water and it never seemed to bother them! I am not as tough as they are so I have made this recipe into my own and I don't get burned! :) I make this for my kids now and they love them! If you like things made from dough, you should love these! It's not that hard to make, it's about multitasking. I'm not sure where the name originally came from, but they have always been German bullets! Enjoy!
