Geröstete Knödel mit Ei und WienerWürze

Roasted dumplings with egg and Viennese spice

Roasted dumplings with eggs are one of the classics of Austrian tavern cuisine. If you have leftover dumplings, they are even a 15 minute recipe. Very easy to make in no time at all and ideal even for beginner cooks. With Viennese spice they also taste wonderfully spicy and you can't stop.

We recommend a classic green salad as a side dish. With the help of thesalad seasoning, the dressing comes together super quickly and both the main course and the side dish are served in this short amount of time.

Did you know that the dumpling land of Austria used to have its own Dumpling day gave?

In old Austrian cuisine, dumplings were often served on the table. Whenever stale bread was in the house, dumplings were made from it. This was often Monday, as there was usually something left over after the hearty Sunday dinner.
