Knoedl (dumplings) are a typical side dish in Bavarian cooking, i.e. with a roast. However, they can be wonderfully combined with mushroom sauce or be served on a salad, lambs lettuce goes particularly well with them. The great thing about Knoedl is that they can be filled, traditionally with mushrooms, but you can try whatever works with the dish. I had leftover pesto and mixed it into the dough instead of filling them. And it worked extremely well. One more tip: leftover knoedls can be cut into pieces and fried in a pan until golden brown. Another favourite!
