German Knepfla Hotdish For Blustery Day


Recommended Posts

Knepfla Hotdish


  • 3 1/2 c. flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 c. water
  • sausage, ham or meat of your choosing
  • 1/2 pint cream
  • 1 tsp. chicken bouillon

Mix flour, salt, egg and water, until dough ball forms. Cut dough into a kettle of boiling water (I use a kitchen scissors). Boil until done (they will float), about 5-10 minutes. Rinse under cold water.


Yummy, scrumptious deliciousness.

Prepare meat in a skillet (fry the sausage, heat the ham, brown the burger, etc.). Combine 1/2 pint of cream, 1 tsp. chicken bouillon and pepper in a small bowl. Add knepfla to meat and pour cream mixture over the top. Heat through.

It’s yummy, it’s great and it doesn’t take a lot of time.

Glad you included the picture so we can see the sizes of the pieces of dough. I think we will try this with a can of evaporated milk instead of cream. Buying & keeping cream around even in a house is problematic. It tends to go bad before we finish it.

This will take care of needing to keep cream:


4 Minute Soft Serve Ice-Cream


1 ¼ cup frozen strawberries

1⁄4 cup castor sugar (superfine sugar)

2⁄3 cup cream

1⁄4 teaspoon vanilla


Combine the frozen strawberries and sugar in a food processor or blender. Process until the fruit is roughly chopped. Add the cream and vanilla and blend until combined. Serve immediately as a delectable soft serve, or freeze for at least 4 hours for a nice firm ice-cream.

Great way to use cream.


My main reason for thinking of using caned evaporated milk is I can store it next to forever and use it whenever. With cream once I buy the cream I have to use it in a reasonable time. Even sooner with the Dometic/Norcold refrigerators. I guess it would help if we planned out our menus for the next week/month. But that's not going to happen. Far to much regulation and needing to stick to a schedule. :)

I just tried a very similar recipe, only it was called slumgullian. Cooked noodles - saute smoked sausage, onions and a little garlic - drain - add to cooked noodles along with a can of tomato soup and a can of whole kernal corn - heat and sprinkle with parmesean cheese. It was very good.
