Cuisine: German
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes



Spinach Filling

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 3 cups fresh spinach
  • 1 egg yolk (save egg white for sealing the dough)
  • nutmeg

Meat Filling

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1 whole egg plus 1 egg yolk (save egg white for sealing the dough)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

For Cooking

Here's how to make them:

  1. Combine all the dough ingredients. Knead the dough until it's smooth. Put the dough into a bowl and allow it to rest for 45 minutes. Roll the dough out very thin with a rolling pin or run it through your pasta machine. Cut the dough into 4 by 4-inch squares. 
  2. To make the spinach filling, heat the olive oil in a skillet. Add the onions and garlic and cook about 2 minutes. Add the spinach and cook until wilted. Add a sprinkling of nutmeg and salt and pepper, to taste. Turn off the heat and stir in the egg yolk. Cool slightly before using. 
  3. To make the meat filling, heat the oil in a skillet. Add the onions and cook until soft. Add the egg, egg yolk, ground beef and parsley to the pan. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cook until beef is cooked through. Cool slightly before using.
  4. To make the Maultaschen,  add desired filling to the center of each dough square. Brush some egg white along the edges and fold together to seal. Seal edges with a fork. Bring the broth to a boil in a large soup pot. Add the dumplings and cook for 12 to 15 minutes. Remove the dumplings and fry in a little butter and top with fried onions or serve them in the soup broth (you could also add some vegetables to the broth while cooking the dumplings).
