German Potato Noodles - Badische Schupfnudeln


Here is another way of serving potatoes from the potato masters, the Germans. This is a good way of serving leftover potatoes, although you can certainly boil them just for this purpose. Browned in butter, these are a great side dish to cream schnitzel.

Serves 2 - 4 for dinner.

Prep Time: 40 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes


  • 1 lb. starchy potatoes, such as Russets, about 4 medium potatoes
  • 2 T. flour or more
  • 2 egg yolks
  • Freshly grated nutmeg to taste
  • 1/2 tsp. salt, or to taste
  • 2 T. butter


Boil the potatoes in their jackets until done, about 30 minutes. Peel potatoes and put them through a ricer.

Add the flour, egg yolks, nutmeg and salt and mix into a stiff dough. Add a more flour, if necessary, to make the dough manageable. Let the dough rest for 15 minutes.

Place dough on a floured board and form into a log. Cut the log into 16-20 pieces. Form each piece into a tapered cylinder by rolling between your hands. It should be thick in the middle and pointed on the ends.

Melt the butter in a frying pan. Carefully add the noodles in a single layer and sauté on all sides until golden brown. Remove from pan and serve warm.

just like mom used to make, Member christinermcd

had troubles forming pliable dough, added more flour till I could roll out, very good, I prefer them boiled and then tossed in butter rather then pan fried , boiling offers a much more softer tecture....coming from a german/polish background really reminded me of home
