Schupfnudeln – potato noodles

Schupfnudeln are particularly thin and pointed potato noodles, which are known under very different recipes. They got their name from the way they are made. The dough is rolled away by hand, pushed away – schupfen is a southern German term for this.

Schupfnudeln are available in variations with and without egg, cooked in fat or salt water. In Franconian cuisine, they are traditionally made from potatoes with egg and fried in fat.
