Austrian Potato Fingers

, , , , , ,

Today we have a typical Austrian “Erdäpfelnudeln”. There is no englisch name known to me for this snack. That’s why I call them Austrian Potato Fingers. It used to be our midday fast food and since we were allowed to eat with our fingers it tasted 10 times so good. 🙂

Basically there are different ways to make them: Sweet, with milk, savoury with sauerkraut and eggs, …

I’m showing you the recipe of my mother.

It goes best with jam.
