Spinach Knödel

Making spinach knödels is a simple way of using stale bread.



Ingredients for 4 persons 

200 g of stale bread

200 g of steamed spinach

1/2 glass of water

1 egg

1 leek

40 g of flour

70 g of bread crumbs

70 g of Grana Padano cheese






Cut the stale bread in small slices, put it in a mixing bowl and soak with milk. Let it soften for about an hour. Wash the leek, cut it to pieces and sauté with a little amount of oil, together with already steamed spinach. Pour flour, bread crumbs, soaked bread, egg, salt, pepper and grated nutmeg in a mixing bowl. Add spinach and cheese and knead well the mixture. Dampen your hands, and obtain a sort of meatballs out of the dough. Boil water in a pot and cook knödel for about 15 minutes. They can be served sauté with butter and sage or with taleggio cream.
