I've just tried German potato noodles. Wow, they are delectable.

German Noodle Recipe

1kg potatoes, cooked the day before
2-3 eggs
a pinch of salt and nutmeg
100g flour
4 litres of boiling saltwater
lard for frying


Peel the potatoes and finely grate them. Add the egg, salt, nutmeg and just enough flour until the mixture holds together (this depends on the sort of potato). Knead the mixture thoroughly, form a roll and cut into slices.

On a floured board form into small finger-sized rolls. Boil the Schupfnudeln in slightly salted water until they rise to the surface. It is a good idea to test one before you continue. If it falls apart in the water, put a little more flour into the remaining mixture. Drain the German potato noodles, then fry them in lard or butter until golden brown and crisp.

Its funny that I cannot stand the texture of mash potato, makes me gag. Potato fritters, similar to this, I just find far too delicious and could gulp em down :D

Maybe I should copy this recipe down.
