Spinach „knödel“ (breadballs)

When we´ve got some stale bread, I cut it into little dices and put it in a bag in the freezer until I have saved enough to make knödel.
I love this way of using stale bread and once you´ve learned how to make knödel, it is a very simple recipe to cook.

4 portions

Ingredients:
400 g stale bread, cut into little dices
Ca. ¼ l milk
200 g spinach
1 small onion
3 cloves of garlic
50 g butter
2 eggs
Nutmeg, salt, butter, parmesan cheese

Preparation:
Pour the hot milk over the diced bread. Fry the finely chopped onion softly in the butter, put the spinach and crushed garlic to the onion. Put all the ingredients with the bread in a bowl and form into knödel-dough. Careful: you might think at first that the dough is too dry, but it isn´t, so don´t put in any extra milk or butter!
Form 8 balls from the dough and put this in hot water (do not boil) and let simmer until ready in about 10-15 minutes.
Pour browned butter over the spinachknödel and sprinkle grated parmesan cheese over them.
