  1. Put a pot on the hob, add butter and heat on medium. Peel the onions, dice finely, add to the butter and sweat.

  2. Finely chop the spinach leaves, add to the onions and briefly sweat. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Put the spinach into a bowl, add the eggs and finely purée everything using a stick hand blender.

  3. Add the milk, parmesan, flour, salt, pepper and white bread, and mix thoroughly. Cover the whole thing and let it rest for about 10 minutes.

  4. Put a large pot with water on the hob and bring to a boil over high heat. Add one teaspoon of salt. With moistened hands, shape the mixture into dumplings. Place the dumplings into the boiling water and turn down the heat so the water is only simmering slightly. After 15 minutes, take the dumplings out of the water and drain.

  5. To serve, put the dumplings on a plate, drizzle with some of the melted butter and sprinkle with parmesan.
