Bread Dumplings au Gratin

Canederli Gratinati


  • 1 recipe canederli
  • 3 tablespoons fresh breadcrumbs
  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh sage or thyme


Drain the canederli, reserving the flavoursome broth. Put them in a buttered baking dish, dot each dumpling with butter and sprinkle over a mixture of fresh breadcrumbs, grated Parmesan and herbs. Cook under a preheated grill until browned on top and serve moistened with just a tablespoonful or two of the cooking liquor – keep the rest of the broth for some other use.
