  • 2 pounds dry-curd cottage cheese or farmer cheese
  • 4 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour plus more for rolling
  • 10 quarts water

    GARNISH
  • 1 cup bread crumbs, lightly toasted in 3 tablespoons butter in a frying pan

  • How To Cook:
    1. In a medium bowl mash the cheese with a fork. Stir in the eggs, teaspoon of the salt, and the flour, all at once.

    2. Turn the dough out onto a floured board and divide it into 4 pieces. Roll each piece out into a rectangle 12 inches long and 2 inches wide. Cut each piece on the diagonal into about 10 pieces.

    3. Bring 10 quarts of water to a boil and add 1 teaspoon salt. Reduce the water to a lightly rolling simmer and add 1/3 of the dumplings to the pot.

    4. Simmer, uncovered, until they float to the top. Remove them with a slotted spoon and drain. Continue until all dumplings are cooked.

    5. Serve with a garnish of toasted bread crumbs.
