Venison with Kartoffblabla

Actually it's Kartoffelknödel, but I can't pronounce it. :)
A friend mentioned these awhile back and I've been wanting to try making them, they look so good .... I googled Kartoffelknödel and this seemed to be the basic recipe everyone uses.

I combined one egg with
cooked tatoes
flour
nutmeg
white pepper
and salt





rolled the tatoes into balls and dropped into water with beef boullion cubes added.
Let them rise to the top and cook for 15 minutes. Removed with a slotted spoon and drained.



I dished up a bowl of my canned venison with gravy and topped with a Kartoffelknödel...



They weren't the prettiest kartoffblablas I've seen but they were tasty!



I plan on practicing making these..... and also practicing my pronunciation. :)

Another great looking meal!! I'd just have to call those boiled tater balls! I did your fried green tomato BLT's tonight & sure was good, thanks for the idea. Don

This is the first time I have ever heard of Kartoffelknödel and I am not going to try to pronounce it. As for making it, sure. I was wondering about using differing flavorings in the boiling water as well.

I think "freakishly huge almost gnocchi" would be a lot easier to pronounce than kartoflavonugens. See, I can't even spell it.

Thanks Don! Boiled tater balls sounds like a great idea. lol
Glad to hear the fried green tomatoes turned out well for you. I know not everyone loves them. :)
Hope you have a great weekend!

Joe I'm glad I'm not the only one... it's hard to spell too. lol
I found an interesting site http://www.livanze.de/knoedel.html
that has pics of many types of these noodles. Some with bacon! I have got to try those sometime. :)
Might be fun to experiment with fillings and broths.
Hope you have a great weekend Joe, Thanks! :)

Looks great Cowgirl! Kartoffelknödel are also great with Hasenpfeffer!

When i first got to Germany i was told they were pronounce.
Kar Tof(like top with an f) Full Can Nuudel(like a elongated noodle)

Hope that helps, and is sort of right.

cowgirl said...

David I need to try that too!! :)
I also want to make Herzoginkartoffeln and some Schweinsbraten to go with my next Kartoffelknodel. I'm pretty sure there are a lot of good foods I am missing out on. lol
Thank you David! :)

cowgirl said...

Wow, those sound so good and would go with anything. I'm imagining them with chicken stock and chicken for a winter dish.

cowgirl said...

That sounds so good Mrs JP! Chicken stock with chicken and maybe a few veggies with a kartoffelnodel in the middle.. I hope I remember to try that this winter.
Thanks!! :)

It's hard not to find your dish as a side in most restaurants in Bavaria. They look great on your venison...a real comfort meal.

Thank you Karen! I would love to visit Bavaria someday! I imagine I would love it there. :)
Thank you for stopping by. :)
