Embark on a delightful journey to Luxembourg with our Kniddelen recipe. These Luxembourgish dumplings, known for their comforting simplicity, offer a taste of tradition and are a staple in the country's culinary tapestry.


2 cups all-purpose flour (lb: 0.9, kg: 0.4)

2 large eggs

1 cup whole milk

Pinch of salt

1 tablespoon butter, melted

Fresh chives for garnish

Grated Gruyere cheese (optional)


In a mixing bowl, combine all-purpose flour, eggs, and a pinch of salt. Gradually add whole milk, stirring continuously to create a smooth batter. Allow the batter to rest for at least 30 minutes. Bring a large pot of salted water to a gentle simmer. Drop spoonfuls of the batter into the simmering water, cooking until the dumplings float to the surface. Remove the Kniddelen with a slotted spoon and place them in a serving dish. Drizzle melted butter over the dumplings and garnish with fresh chives. Optionally, add grated Gruyere cheese for extra indulgence.


Serve Kniddelen warm, embracing their luxurious simplicity. Enjoy them as a side dish or as the star of your Luxembourgish meal.
