Dumplings are Czech cooking traditions, but the term is also used for potato balls filled with meat or fruit stuffing, or for loafs of bread. In my recipe, I use a wheat bread (bun). This is a very good and tasty bread that can be successfully used as an alternative to Czech dumplings. Karlovarsky dumpling is nothing but a baked bread slices combined with milk, egg and a little flour, by the way. It works well in horseradish soup.

P.S. Horseradish soup (Chrzanówka) tastes best in Chrzanów;) Get the best wheat buns at Piskorek Bakery;)
