My grandmother used to make noodles that we would have pretty much each Sunday. I have described them to people before, and they claim they are just dumplings, but shaped like egg noodles. They were indeed shaped like egg noodles, probably a little thicker. When she served them they had very little liquid with them, but they were piled into a large bowl. I could eat them without anything else to go with them, though they were a great with everything she ever served with them. I do believe they were boiled in chicken broth. So, anyone have an idea?
