Hungarian Potato Noodles
Homemade Hungarian potato noodles served in sweet, buttery sauce with bread crumbs.
3 to 4 medium potatoes, cooked and mashed
1 large egg
2 to 3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (4 ounces) butter
2/3 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup hot water
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- In a large bowl, mix mashed potatoes with the egg. Make a well in the center of mixture and add enough flour and the salt to form a soft dough. Roll dough into ropes about 1/4-inch in diameter and cut into 1 to 1 1/2-inch pieces.
- Heat a large pot of water to boil. Drop noodles into boiling water and cook until done, about 10 minutes. Drain well.
- In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add bread crumbs and cook until nicely browned, stirring often. Add the water and sugar and cook for about 5 minutes or until crumbs have softened. Add the drained noodles and toss to coat well. Serve hot.
Makes 4 to 6 servings.
