Want to know how to make noodles? Here's an easy way to make Schupfnudeln - a traditional German side dish.
Popular in the Baden-Württemberg area, but also found throughout Germany, these potato noodles are recognizable with their unusual shape.
Because they almost look like little fingers they are also known as "Fingernudeln" or "finger noodles".
Especially if you are looking for kid friendly dinner recipes, these fun-shaped noodles are also a great way to use up leftover potatoes.
The best kind of potatoes for this are starchy ones, such as russets.
If your potatoes aren't starchy enough, you may need to add a bit extra
flour to get the right consistency. Potato flours works for this as well.
I never realized as I was growing up that noodles were among the traditional German foods. I used to think I was eating "Italian" when Mutti made what I now know as German noodles!
