For the morning of my birthday my husband used left over knedliky, also known as dumplings, from the dinner my mother in law made us the night before to make breakfast. Knedlíky Vejce is just a simple breakfast dish in which we used Lone Star Eggs that are locally source along with bacon, onion, and dumplings.
It’s a Czech dish but many don’t know that a lot of the Texas population is made up of many Czech people. We even have a town that has Czech restaurants and other Czech style foods. Some of the beer is even consider to be part Czech even though it tastes pretty far from Czech beer.
I love when my husband takes the time to cook me breakfast but this was extra special! It was for my birthday. I requested he make a Czech dish for me. The dumpling are boiled and can be found in the comments on this recipe page. You simply keep the left overs and fry them with onion, bacon, and eggs. If you get caught putting ketchup on this you might get in trouble too!
I thought it would be nice to share one of my husband’s recipes here on the blog. I also thought it would be interesting to see what recipes you make with eggs? Do you buy locally sourced eggs? My husband and I always prefer to buy local if we can as the funds go right back into our local economy.
I would love to hear about your family traditional recipes. If you have one comment below with a link or the recipe! I always love trying new recipes especially if they are not the common dishes we are use to. Now for the recipe for Knedlíky Vejce.
