Today I am sharing a recipe for a true classic, Czech Dumplings and Scrambled Eggs, known as Knedlíky s Vajíčkem in Czech. This tasty dish only has a few ingredients and is very quick and easy to make.
- Leftover bread dumplings (4 or 6)
- 3 eggs
- I Tbsp. lard or butter
- chopped small onion or shallot (optional)
- chopped cooked ham (optional)
- salt and pepper to taste
You can use either lard or butter. I mix half a tablespoon of duck fat and a half a tablespoon of butter. Place onto non-stick skillet and melt.
If you are using the onion or shallot, add it to the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes on medium heat.
While that is cooking, cut your dumplings into small cubes.
Add them to the pan and fry to taste.
I also salt and pepper them at this point.
Some people like them very crispy, almost like croutons – while others just warm them. It’s really a personal preference.
When they are to your satisfaction, add the eggs, beaten in a small bowl. Some people will add a touch of milk to the egg mixture. Again, it’s a personal preference.
If you are using the ham, add it with the eggs.
Mix and cook until eggs are to your liking. Some folks like them wet, others cook them dry.
Garnish with pickles and tomatoes. I also like to add some chopped green onion.
