3 eggs and salt

or purchase ready-made-dough from the bakery (must be ordered in advance here)

Cut dough into 8 inch by 10-inch-stripes

and spread with the following delicious filling :

7 ounces cold roast or ground meat
3 1/2 ounces bacon or Bologna-Type sausage
3 1/2 ounces "Brät"(substitude with pork sausage)
and 4 dry (day-old) soaked in water...rolls.
Put these ingredients trough meat grinder.
then add 4 eggs salt,pepper and nutmeg.
Saute 1 tblsp each of chopped parsley,minced onion in 1 1/2 tblsp fat.
Let cool.

Add to ground meat mixture.
Then add 18 ounces cooked,well-strained and finely chopped spinach. Thoroughly mix and check seasoning once more.
Spread evenly on strips of dough.
Roll strips and cut into rectangular pieces or squares.
Drop the compleated "Maultaschen" into salted boiling water and cook for 8 - 10 minutes.

Three serving alternatives are possible :

Serve as soup in meat stock or broth and cover with minced onion sauteed in fat or serve with potato or cut into thin stripes,

Sometimes the humorous Swabians make a real "Maultaschen-Festival" with this dish by first serving them in broth and then fryed with potato-salad. btw... the word-for-word translation would be "snouth pockets" *lol*
