Ugly - but YUMMY!!!

Ugly - but YUMMY!!!

I went to live with an Aunt & Uncle. The aunt's mom used to make these when money was tight. It was a filling meal, and depending on your taste, you could use variations to make it taste better. They used to pour almost burnt butter over them and also sometimes used ketchup.


I altered the recipe a bit, by frying them in browned butter instead and slightly salting them with sea salt. Initially, I thought these were disgusting, but eventually, I have developed periodic cravings for them (at least once a month). And, for the record, I may not be spelling it correctly?!

This is a VERY easy recipe. I may not have the German spelling correct, but it sounds as it reads.

I believe this is a recipe for people on a budge; it is a filling meal that doesn’t require much. And, I have established a craving for it periodically, even though I am not in starving mode anymore.

    Ingredients:
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 eggs
  • water (just sprinkles of it, to moisten the mixture)
  • Salt or Sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons of butter

    Instructions:
  • Start a 2-quart pot of water boiling (add salt/sea salt if desired).
  • In a bowl, mix flour and eggs with a fork, squishing to remove lumps as best you can - you may need to sprinkle water on it, to make it soft like thick pancake batter.
  • With a spoon, take ¼ scoops from the side of the bowl and drop into hot boiling water and shake off spoon until bowl is empty.
  • The droppings will go to the bottom of the pot and float to the top (adjust heat to avoid overflow boiling).
  • When all the droppings appear to be floating to the top, remove. (You can keep them in the boiling water until you are ready to serve.)

    Topping:
  • Melt butter in a fry pan until golden brown (do not burn/turn black).
  • Pour over the Kanedelan.

You are now ready to eat. Salt to taste. Some people put ketchup on them. Personally, I like to throw them into a fry pan and make them slightly crisp on both sides and slightly salt. That is my special twist to this recipe.

Enjoy!

Wir haben sie immer Knudeln genannt. Schnelles und billiges Essen. Mit Butter drüber und vielleicht ein Spiegelei, lecker!!

What you are describing are Knoedele. In Austria, where I come from, we used to call them Nockerln.

We used to serve them with gravy. My personal favorite was with Gulasch. We also fried them like you and poured eggs over them. Delicious!!
