Roast Pork with
bread dumplings
and sauerkraut

It's the national dish of the Czech Republic. See my authentic bread dumpling background recipe below.

Bread dumplings

Houskové knedlíky (the Czech name) is used to soak up the meat juices on the plate. Potato dumplings are also popular, but bread dumplings are closer to the Czech's heart.
