These USPO (unidentified shape pasta objects) are kneppes (some say kneffes, kneppfle, knodels, gnocchi…). They are one of the preferred veggies in Lorraine, perfect to go with a dish in sauce.

That’s just about dropping pasta dough in water, then refrying…
Do you want grandma’s recipe ? What recipe ? Seriously, she’d say “Let’s make the kneppes…” and just mixed stuff. That’s easy. In mines, I put flour, egg, water, that’s sure. Then either cream, butter and milk, or a leftover of mashed potatoes. Today that was a tbs of cream cheese. A little nutmeg and black pepper.
Then serve with a dish in sauce.
I made a stir-fry with chicken gizzards.
The sauce is oyster sauce based.
