Dumplings/Noodles (March of the Grenadiers)

3 cups flour
3 or 4 eggs
Enough water to make a firm
˝ tsp salt
2 large onions, chopped
˝ tsp salt
5 or 6 diced, boiled potatoes
(leftover mashed potatoes can also be used)
Put the flour and salt
into a bowl and make a well in the centre. Add the eggs and a
little water. Stir with a wooden spoon or table knife, adding more
flour or water to make a firm dough. Knead into a smooth ball.
Cover with a cloth and let rest.
In a large pot, bring
water and ˝ tsp salt to a boil. Roll out the dough to about a
half-inch thickness. Cut into about 4” x 4” pieces. Holding one
piece at a time, tear off small pieces, about the size of a
teaspoon, and drop into the simmering water, being careful it does
not boil over (have a glass of cold water ready just in case). Once
the noodles start rising to the top, stir a little and keep
simmering for a few minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water.
Bought pasta can be substituted.
In a pan or Dutch oven,
large enough to hold the potatoes and noodles, sauté the chopped
onions and the salt in oil (or lard) till golden. For enhanced
flavour, diced bacon may also be fried with the onions. Add the
potatoes and noodles. Mix together and keep stirring, allowing to
Serve with a green salad
for a delicious meatless meal.
