GERMAN POTATO NOODLES (SCHUPFNUDELN)
German potato noodles, called Schupfnudeln in German, are made from a similar dough as Italian Gnocchi and can be used in many different ways.
You can fry them in butter and eat them with sauerkraut - or coat them in ground poppy seeds and powdered sugar to enjoy them sweet!
First, cook the potatoes in boiling water for 20-25 minutes until tender.
Let the potatoes cool for a bit. Then peel them and mash them with a potato masher.
Place the mashed potatoes in a mixing bowl. Add the flour, egg, salt, pepper, and nutmeg.
Mix everything together with your hands and form a ball of dough.
Separate the dough into two parts. Roll out one part with your hands until you have a thin roll.
Cut off small pieces of dough, then shape these into long noodles with tapered ends (with a look similar to fingers).
Bring water to a light boil. Add the potato noodles and let them sit in simmering water for around 5 minutes until they float.
Once boiled, you can either fry them in a pan with butter - or coat them in ground poppy seeds and icing sugar. Enjoy!
