"Dairy dumplings" (Túrógombóc) (from Eszter.com)

Thanks to my Mom for this one!

Note: this is a sweet dish, but more than dessert. It works well to serve with a hearty soup or salad as the second and final course.

7.5 oz Farmer cheese (no salt added type)
1/4 cup farina
1 small egg
For topping:
1 cup breadcrumbs
2 tbs powder (or fine granulated) sugar
2 tbs sour cream (or yoghurt for less fat)

How to prepare:

Start boiling some water, in a medium-sized pan almost filled, but not quite.
Mix the egg, farmer's cheese and farina in a bowl. Once it's well mixed, form little balls in your hand, about 1-1.5 inch in diameter. Once the water is boiling, place the balls in the water. Wait until they surface. They're ready to serve.
Top the dairy balls - or let's call them dumplings - off with the following. Put the breadcrumbs in a frying pan with a little bit of oil and warm up few a few minutes while stirring. Then pour the crumbs over the dairy dumplings. Add sugar and sour cream/yoghurt as desired.

And that's it. It is extremely easy. In fact, it's unbelievable that something so easy can taste so good.
