Vicky needs some help too! She's asking for something she calls "Klob (sounds like cloths)"

To me it sounds like a kind of bread dumpling (Kloß) ... but not sure. What do you think? Have a recipe?

Holly Blessen Pronounced "Kloss" - but isn't that made with potatoes? I've made her recipe, but with condensed milk and not boiled but baked. I use a can of milk and two eggs for every loaf, no pepper, but cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. I bake by smell- when I start to smell it. I would bake it in a pan, poaching it would pull out the flavor, no?

Holly Blessen I meant to finish that statement! LOL! I meant to say that when I start to smell it, it is almost done, I keep an eye on it and pull it when it looks golden. My oven is verrückte, I never know if it will hold a temperature consistently.

Sophie Wagner that`s right - but they are pretty difficult to prepare. Made of bread, eggs, Flavour and herbs an than put into a claen white "cloth" and hang this in a pot cooking water - not into the water just into the steam - close the pot and finish after appr. 20min.

Angie Warwick I think you've got that right, Gerhild. The esszet at the end of the word is often mistaken for a B as it does not exist in the alphabet over here.

Hannelore Boehmer That sounds a whole lot like a Servietten-Kloss and I think that came from Slisia (Schlesien).

Christine Burrows yeh, sounds like dumpling, made with flour in our house. We had it in soups.

Barbara Dodson Sounds a little like what my Mom and Grandma use to make ( usually only special occassions cuz of the labor involved ) we call it "Beulges" its made about the same except no milk and Shredded potatos instead of bread then u add leeks, speckwürfel/baconfat squares and salami chunks the size of boulion cubes ) and pitted prunes ( trust me it is super yum ) prep is in linen sacks the size of a good salami tie the top real good lay in saltwater for several hours . And the gravy is like country gravy w/bits of fatback :-)) NOTE: if ur saltrestricted ya might wanna refrain ;))

Sandra Wiley It's a bread dumpling. You can make them individually or one big one.

Joachim Gabel Because I'm unable to make 'Semmelknödel', I use the same method: Soak bread in milk and egg, season with salt, pepper, nutmeg and chopped parsley, fold in a towel and cook in water for 20 minutes. And then that's called 'Serviettenknödel'. Works with potato daugh, too.

Remy Sage Semmelknödel - I make these with torn old bread, milk, eggs, diced bacon & diced onion (slightly pre-fried), chopped parsley, salt & pepper. Press into firm tennis ball size and drop into boiling water; will float when done. Great with schnitzel, steak, roast chicken, etc. However, I can't recall mum or oma ever making these (they made leberknödel - teaspoon size and dropped into boiling chicken or tomato soup. As a kid I added a little sugar to the tomato soup, very yummy!

Ellen Fenstermacher Definitely a type of dumpling. It sounds large... I picture it like the Bohemian type they served in Prague. You would get several slices of a dumpling from a huge one,and typically, with your meat, sauce or gravy, and sauerkraut or red cabbage.

Marianne Link-Alexander I worked in the kitchen of a Bavarian restaurant, Semmelknödel is what they called them, but were prepared as individual Knödel, also had chopped parsley in them! They were served with sauerkraut AND Rippchen ( smoked pork chops) now I'm hungry!

Monika Liedl Dr. Oetker has all the answers, only mine is not handy at the moment. Almost a bread stuffing with egg, cook in boiling water / broth till it floats if I remember correctly. Leftover ones were sliced, dropped Ina sautéed pan with onions and butter, cooked till nice and crisp. Almost like home fries.
