Light Fluffy dumpling that looks like a snow ball. Those southern thingies are pot pie noodles any good Dutchman could tell you that. This can be used for Sauerkraut dishes such as pork or hot dogs and sauerkraut or in our version of Chicken and dumplings, Ham and dumplings, Beef and.. you get the picture.. any meat stew.
Spaetzle are like noodles but better! They are served with many Hungarian meals and also Bavarian/German meals. They are used as the starch part of the meal in place of potatoes, rice or pasta Once cooked you can fry them in butter or just toss them with a little butter. Serve with gravy etc.your choice. The picture with the Spaetzle on the red plate is the way they look right after boiling them and have a little butter on them, they are quite good served plain like this. The photo in the fry pan is the way I like them most. I used a little bacon dripping, fried some onions and mushrooms added the cooked spaetzel and browned it very slowly took approx 30 minutes. Chopped bacon is also very good mixed in. Spaetzel is a nice change from regular pasta.
I grew up with my mother making a plain version of these all winter long. I could just eat a plate of the dumplings alone and forget the soup; I liked them that much. Now I make them for my kids and add different ingredients to change the flavors.
I grew up with these perogies. Yummy! You can save potato water from potatoes you boil for your meal the night before. The water can be refrigerated and used the next day. Best to have at room temperature, though. You can use some of the dough right away and freeze the rest for a later date. Works well that way.
This is my favorite standard dumpling recipe from the cookbook "White Trash Cooking." This is not a light and fluffy dumpling but more like a noodle, but not really pasta. They hold up well when making homemade chicken and dumplings. This is incredibly easy and I'm still unsure why it works so well but I won't complain.
Similar to #263677 Pierogi Leniwe (Polish Cheese Dumplings) but maybe a little easier and less time-consuming. Simple to make and very good. Great for Lenten meals. From a Slovenian Cookbook in my collection.
Hungarian noodle dish served with braised meats and paprikash dishes.
I come from a long line of Hungarian's and am a first generation Hungarian-American. We call it Nockerl and many Hungarian cookbooks call it by this name. Get over it.
Entered for safe-keeping for ZWT. Posted by Cherihannah on grouprecipes.com, who claims the potato dumplings instead of egg noodles are the "Old Country" way and egg noodles are the (American) Pennsylvanian way. I am still in shock over 1 1/2 cups of butter (3 sticks)!
