Notes:

Please find here the original recipe for Speckknödel from South Tyrol, made with old white bread

http://www.altoadige-suedtirol.it/spezialitaeten/gastronomie/rezepte/speckknoedel.php

For Speckknödel made with protein bread it is necessary to bake them in muffin forms, as they will not withstand being simmered in water and fall apart
