Shredded Cabbage and Dumplings

You could call this dish almost a regular in our house because it is made quite often.  Both hubby and I love it and believe it or not the children and some of the grandchildren do too!  Two of the boy grandchildren won't even try it! but I'm thinking years to come they will too.

All it takes is one large head of greenish cabbage(for some color). Sliced rather thin if you can or buy a large bag or two of shredded cabbage at the grocery store,  1 stick butter, 1 medium to large onion, sliced , salt and pepper to start.

The dumplings are sooooo easy.  

2 cups flour
1 egg
1 tsp. salt
1 cup milk

In medium bowl beat egg with fork , add water and salt. Fold in flour.  Bring a medium pot to boil, drop batter using a 1/2 of a small teaspoon(see photo).  Stir while adding so as not to stick to bottom of pan. Cook on medium heat until noodles come to top.  Cook for several minutes more. Drain.  Add to Cabbage/onion mixture. Enjoy!  Easy and it's a keeper!!!

Note:  If batter is too thin add a bit more flour.  If too thick a bit more milk. It'll work out fine.
