Servietten Knudel (Napkin Dumpling)

6 ounce s
2 tablespoon s
minced garlic
medium onion, minced
loaf white bread, crust trimmed
2 tablespoon s
minced marjoram
2 tablespoon s
minced chives
1 tablespoon
minced parsley
egg, lightly beaten
2 cup s
Salt and freshly ground white pepper
Freshly ground nutmeg, to taste
  1. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F. 
  2. In a sauté pan, over medium high heat, melt the butter. Cook the garlic and onions until translucent. Do not allow to develop color. 
  3. Cut the bread into 1/2-inch cubes. Place on a baking sheet and bake in the oven to dry, about 20 minutes. Do not allow to develop color. Transfer to a large mixing bowl. Pour the onion mixture all over the bread. Add the marjoram, chives and parsley. Toss to evenly distribute the herbs with the bread. 
  4. In a small bowl, combine the egg and milk. Add to the bread mixture. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg to taste. 
  5. Divide the mixture into 6 portions. Wrap each portion in plastic wrap, roll and secure the ends, shaping like a large sausage. Wrap with a layer of aluminum foil. 
  6. In a large pot, bring water to a boil. Add salt. Add wrapped dumplings and simmer for about 20 minutes. Remove from the water and unwrap. Slice into 1-inch disks.
