Soup Nuts (Mandlen)




  1. Beat eggs slightly; add oil and salt while beating. Stir into sifted flour gradually to make a dough stiff enough to handle.
  2. Form into pencil thin rolls on a floured board or between the palms of both hands.
  3. Flatten slightly and cut into quarter- or half-inch pieces.
  4. Bake on a cookie sheet or in a shallow baking pan at 375 degrees F for 10 minutes until nicely browned. Shake the pan or stir occasionally to brown evenly on all sides.
  5. When cold and dry, these Mandlen may be stored for several days and heated before serving in clear soup or with meat gravy.

Serves 6 to 8.

Variation: Drop the Mandlen into hot melted shortening and cook like doughnut until nicely browned and crisp. Skim out with a slotted spoon as soon as brown. It is best to drop in only as many as will not crowed the pan and skim out as fast as browned. Drain on paper towels. Reheat by enclosing in a paper bag, twisting the top to close and placing in a preheated 350 degree F oven for 5 minutes.
