Potato noodles, made from scratch

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!

How to make Noodles: Schupfnudeln ❤️

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb potatoes, peeled and cubed 
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 4 tbsp flour
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • salt, pepper, nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp butter

Instructions:

  • Cook potatoes until tender in boiling water (about 10 minutes).
  • Drain potatoes and let steam escape to dry the potatoes (put pot of potatoes back on burner briefly to evaporate moisture)
  • Mash the potatoes or put through a ricer and add egg yolks, flour, and cornstarch. Season with salt, pepper, and freshly ground nutmeg.
  • Mix well, adding a bit more flour if necessary to make a dough that isn't sticky.
  • Using floured hands, form dough into log shape. Cut log into about 20 pieces and form each into a "finger-shape" by rolling between your hands. If the dough is too sticky, add a bit of flour. Each noodle should be thicker in the middle and narrower and pointed at the ends.
  • Place noodles into a pot of gently boiling water (add about 2 tsp of salt to water) and simmer until they float, about 5 minutes. Remove noodles and drain them.
  • Over medium heat, melt butter in a saucepan. Add boiled noodles and sauté until golden brown.
  • Serves 2 - 4 (depending if side dish or main dish)
