Ingredients

  • Kosher salt

  • 1 1/4

    pounds russet potatoes (about 2 medium potatoes)

  • 1

    egg

  • 1

    bunch chives, finely chopped (about 1/4 cup)

  • 1/2

    cup all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting

  • 2

    tablespoons butter, plus more as needed

Directions

1. Bring a pot of water to a boil and salt the water. Boil the potatoes whole, with skins on, until fork-tender, 35-40 minutes. When cool enough to handle, peel the potatoes and pass through a ricer or food mill into a large bowl. You want to have 3 1/2 cups of riced potatoes. 2. In a small bowl, whisk the egg and stir in the chives. Stir the egg mixture into the potatoes, sprinkle in the flour and 1 teaspoon salt, and mix to form a dough. Turn the dough onto a floured work surface and knead for about 1 minute to develop the gluten. It will feel fairly soft. Roll each noodle out so that it’s thinner on the ends and fatter in the middle, like a delicious slug. 3. Divide the dough into 4 even pieces, cut each piece into eighths, and then pinch each piece in half. Flour your hands and roll each piece into a 4-inch noodle, kind of like rolling Play-Doh. Each one will look sort of like a slug, a little fatter in the middle than on the ends. You’ll get about 80 noodles. Any noodles you don’t use, you can spread out on a baking sheet, freeze, and transfer to a zip-top freezer bag and store in the freezer for up to 2 months. 4. In a large, heavy sauté pan over medium heat, melt the 2 tablespoons of butter until the foam subsides and it starts to smell nutty and get golden brown. Working in batches, add the finger noodles so they are not crowded and sauté until all sides are browned. Add more butter to the pan as needed between batches. Transfer the noodles to a paper-towel-lined plate, and serve once the excess butter has drained.
