My great-grandmother was from Germany and as a child her and my grandmother use to make these amazing little dumplings they called Kniffles. Grandma would make them plain with just butter or she would add them to soups. My favorite is when she would make a huge batch along with her famous chicken gravy!
Now that I am older, I make these for my own kids and my kids love them almost as much as I do!
1/4 cup milk
1/4 tsp. salt
In a large bowl mix the eggs, milk, and salt. Add enuf flour inside and out so its not too stiff, but then again not too sticky too. You want the dough to be kinda stiff and kinda sticky! Boil some salt water in a LARGE Pot Cut the dough using a knife into small chunks and place into the boiling water. The knifflies will float when done. Test the biggest one you can find to see if it is done. If still doughy in the middle boil a little bit longer.
The Kniffles (Dumplings) taste good plain with butter on them or dripped in gravy! They also are perfect for soups such as tomatto or chicken noodle! or even veggie! My grandma serves them with beef tips dripped over them. They can be used for almost anything you would use noddles with! YUM! one of my all time favorites!
