Austrian Poppy Seed Fingers

, , , , ,

An Austrian speciality.
We loved poppy seed fingers when we were little, we had them for lunch after a soup when we came home from school.
I still love them and so do our kids!

The dough is simply made out of potatoes. You roll them to „Schupfnudeln“ fingers. Let them simmer in salted water and then toss in butter and poppy seeds. Finished!

For poppy seed lovers!! Small or big!! 🙂
