- 5 cups flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup lukewarm water
- 150 g Unsalted Butter for dough

- 1 lb fresh mushrooms
- 1 onion
- 1 cup bacon pieces
- 1 tbsp salt adjust to taste
- 1 tsp ground black pepper adjust to taste
Prepare ingredients for the recipe.
Place the flour and salt in a large bowl. Make a little well in the middle. Place whisked eggs, water, and melted butter into it. Using a fork, work the ingredients together to form the dough. Finish up combining the ingredients by hand until you get a smooth, even texture.
Divide the dough into eight even pieces. On a floured surface, roll each piece into a long string. Dice each string into small pieces.
- At this point, you can either freeze the raw dough for later use or move onto the next step to cook them.
- Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Toss in the raw dumplings and boil them until they float to the top.
Gather the topping ingredients.
Dice mushrooms and sauté them in a buttered skillet for about 5 minutes. Dice the onions and add them to the skillet, cooking them until softened. Season with salt and pepper.
- Stir in bacon pieces, sauté for 5 minutes.
- Place dumplings into a nonstick skillet and add in sautéed mixture and butter. Cook until they turn golden brown.
- Serve immediately and enjoy!
