Saving at home – Spinach Canederli

Here is a tasty traditional Tyrolean dish done with very simple ingredients: bread and spinach

They should be served as first course, seasoned with abundant melted butter and grated parmesan cheese.


Ingredients 4-6 people: 450 g of bread (not fresh, from the day before is the best) – 250 g boiled spinach – 2 eggs – 1 glass of whole milk – butter – nutmeg – salt and pepper

Cut the bread into cubes, collect it in a large bowl and moisten it by immerging in the milk.

In a saucepan melt a large piece of butter and fry for a few minutes the boiled, squeezed and minced spinach.

Mix the bread with the spinach, the eggs, the nutmeg, the salt and pepper.

If the dough is too soft, add some grated dry bread.

With wet hands prepare small balls, (about the size of a lemon) and cook them in abundant boiling, salted water.

In the meantime, melt the butter in a saucepan; drain the dumplings, sprinkle them with the grated cheese and add the melted butter.

Variants: Inside each dumpling it is possible to put a piece of cheese like fontina or caciotta (these are Italian cheeses, but the important is that you choose one that melts easily); you can also cook them in steam (it will take about 20 minutes).

Enjoy your meal!
