Fill a kettle 3/4 full of water, add pinch of salt. Peel and cut into quarters 2 medium potatoes, and add to the water. When water has reached a rolling boil, cut and add the following dough: cook until potatoes are done.
DOUGH: 2 1/2 cups of flour, 1 tsp salt, 1 egg, about 1/2 cup of water.

Combine all ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Mix with a spoon until the dough forms, then knead to completely mix. Dough will be very stiff. Cut small pieces with a knife and drop into boiling water. The dough is done when potatoes are tender. Pour off water and brown slightly in melted butter. Serve with sweet butter or gravy.
