These dumplings are called "lazy pierogi" in Polish, because they contain similar ingredients as pierogi, but require much less effort. Serve them as a dessert with melted butter and sugar or as a side dish with a savoury sauce.

Place a large pot with 3 to 4 L of water on low heat and cover. Add a teaspoon of salt and mix to dissolve.
If the quark is grainy - grind it or press through a sieve to obtain a smooth texture.
Add quark to a large bowl. (If the quark is grainy, pass it through a sieve to obtain a smoother texture). Add eggs and half of the flour; mix until even and a softer mixture forms.
Add remaining flour and a pinch of salt, mix well.
Transfer the dough on a floured surface and roll long logs about 2.5cm in diameter. Cut the logs diagonally into 3cm pieces.
Bring the pot of water to the boil; drop the dumplings in batches into the boiling water. Mix with a spoon and boil for 2 minutes from the moment they float to the surface.
Remove with a slotted spoon into a colander or onto a plate.
To prepare the topping, heat up a dry pan until hot. Add breadcrumbs and stir to brown evenly. Once nicely browned, add butter and mix until melted. Pour over the dumplings on a plate. Serve immediately.
