The good thing on Czech kitchen is they have used a genuine way how to process leftovers from earlier dishes. So, no waste left to throw. And today I’ll show you one of my recipes as an example. How to make a really tasty meal from your old dumplings.
I guess you already tried my Traditional Czech Dumplings recipe.
And today I’ll show you one recipe what you can make if you have some leftover. It is very simple and those dumplings have really wide use but sometimes can happen that after 2 – 3 days you have still some in the fridge. It will be a waste to throw it to the trash because you can still make a very simple and tasty breakfast (or supper). So, let me show you how to do it.
First cut the dumplings into around ½ inch small cubes.
Then prepare a deep-fry pan. Add lard (or veg oil) and preheat the deep-fry pan over moderate heat.
Then add the dumplings cubes and fry them for a couple of minutes. Stir occasionally. If you like them chewy 3 – 5 minutes will be just enough. If you prefer more crispy add more time.
Before the dumpling cubes are getting ready it is the time prepare eggs. Put the eggs to a new bowl. Add a pinch of salt, ground black pepper, oregano (optional – some people don’t like this kind of herb), milk and beat them (using a fork or a whisker) until they are well together.
Then pour the beaten eggs into the pan with dumplings and cook them for another 3 – 4 minutes (don’t forget to stir) depends how you like them.
Serve your dumplings x scrambled eggs mishmash hot. You can sprinkle it with soft chopped spring onions or some chive and fresh tomatoes, gherkins or sauerkraut… It depends on what you like.
Enjoy your meal.
