Remove the bread "skin", the hard brown part, and flake it into a mixing bowl and add the Beef mince with it.
Peel and chop the onion and garlic cloves and fry them in a pan till they are glossy. Remove them from the heat and add to the mixing bowl with the bread mince mix.
In a separate small bowl whisk together the eggs, salt and milk and it to the bread mix together with the herbs, pepper and lime zest.
With clean hands start smashing and mixing the whole content of the bowl. Leave it to stand for 20 mins, so the flavors can get used to each other.
mins later form the Knödel with your hands into round dumplings and keep a pot with water on high heat and wait till it boils. Take down the heat and submerge the Knödel carefully into the water. Leave them there for 20 mins till they cook. Once ready take them out and serve them hot with either a soup or salad or they taste excellent too with Sauerkraut and some sausages.
