Break bread into small pieces; place in a medium bowl and pour milk over.
Sauté onion in oil until brown.
Combine bread, onion and remaining ingredients; blend well. Mixture should be
stiff - add more milk or bread to adjust consistency. Working with floured hands,
form mixture into a roll about 2 1/2 inches wide. Cut roll into 8 pieces and form
each into a dumpling.
Boil dumplings in water, being careful not to overcrowd the pot. Do not cover
Simmer over low heat for about 15 minutes; dumplings are done when they float.
