~ 3 squirrels, cut up (All hair and shot removed.)
~ 1 egg
~ 2 cups plain flour
~ 3/4 cup broth
~ 1 teaspoon salt
~ salt and pepper
Boil squirrels in four quarts of water until tender. Remove squirrels from broth, let cool, then remove meat from bones. Set aside.
In large bowl, mix flour, egg and one teaspoon of salt with 3/4 cup of broth and roll into ball.
Strain the broth to remove any stray shot then resume boil. Return meat to boiling broth.
On a floured cutting board, use rolling pin to roll the dough ball to a thickness of 1/16 inch. Cut into 1-inch wide strips and drop strips one at a time into the boiling broth. Gently shake pot after last dumpling is added to prevent sticking.
Cook approximately 10-15 minutes until dumplings are tender. Salt and pepper to taste.
