chef.gonzalo's picture
  Stale white bread slice 2 (Including Crusts)
  Milk 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Chicken livers 1⁄4 Pound
  Unsalted butter 1 Tablespoon
  Finely chopped red onion 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Egg whites 2 , lightly beaten
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Freshly ground black pepper To Taste
  Parsley 1 Teaspoon, finely chopped
  Dry breadcrumbs 1 Cup (16 tbs)

1) Soak the bread slices in the milk for about 5 minutes, and then squeeze them dry.
2) Run the bread and chicken livers together through a meat grinder into a mixing bowl, or chop them together finely with a sharp knife.
3) In a heavy 10- or 12-inch skillet, melt the butter.
4) When the foam subsides, add the onions.
5) Cook them for about 8 minutes, or until they are lightly colored, then add them to the bread-and-liver mixture.
6) Stir in the egg whites, salt, a few grindings of pepper and the parsley.
7) Add 1/2-cup breadcrumbs, mix, and put 1 tablespoon of the mixture into a ball.
8) If it is too soft to hold together firmly, add more breadcrumbs by the tablespoon.
9) Dust your hands lightly with flour and form all the mixture into balls about 1 inch in diameter.
10) Bring the soup to boil in which the dumplings are to be cooked, reduce the heat to medium and drop in the dumplings.
11) Boil, uncovered, until the dumplings rise to the surface.
12) Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 2 or 3 minutes longer.

13) Serve dumplings in the soup they were cooked.
