I know I spelled it wrong,I got this repice from my German Graddmother she never kept recipes always from memory, I beleive it is made out of something like a pancake dough you chop it up in a big skilletI beleive you put sugar on it,The last time I made it was in the 50's, My 85 year old brother asked me for the recipe as his kids& my kids loved it ror breakfast, I need to taste it again. I hope someone has it,Thanks

Where did the name Schmutta come from though?
by: Rachel

Weird - I grew up eating this dish; We also called it Schmutta or however you spell it, yet nowhere on the internet could I find why it was called Schmutta over the Kaiserschmarrn which I see everywhere. Looks like it's the same, but where did "Schmutta" come from?

One of my favorites.
by: H K

My mother still makes this for us kids, when we ask her too. She also makes a green salad with a white dressing to eat with it. We call it milk dressing. It's tangy and sweet. My grandmother made smudda and many other so called peasant's food when I was younger. I just know them as good eats.

Ma'a crumb "Shmuda"
by: Scott Decker

4 cups flour
1 TBSP. cream of wheat
1 Teaspoon salt
4 egg's
2 cups milk

Mix as pancake batter
Pour batter into 1/4 cup hot oil, stir and fry until crumbly ( Ma always used her cast iron skillet)

Cook slowly as to not to burn it. While you are stirring it will break up frequently to make the crumb size pieces.

I always like syrup on mine but Pa liked it with sugar

Enjoy!

Bread schmorn
by: Anonymous

This is what my Mom called bread schmorn. You take 2-3 day old bread and cut it into 1-inch cubes and mix milk and eggs together and pour over bread cubes just to moisten. Put butter in a skillet and fry these cubes until browned. We put syrup or brown sugar on them. This came from my grandparents in Germany also.

Smorn
by: Anonymous

My Oma always called this Smorn (shmorn)(sp?). She has Americanized it for us girls as pancake batter (that uses milk and eggs not just water) plus a smidge of vamilla. We topped ours with applesauce and sugar and cinnamon. YUMMY! Its a family favorite!

German side dish my Grandma made
by: Anonymous

My grandmother made something like that all the time, but we usually ate it with gravy. I never had a written recipe,but watched it being made and have made it myself for years.
Its made with 2C flour,2 eggs,2t salt, and enough milk to make a batter thicker than pancake batter.
Heat an iron skillet to medium high with enough oil(back in the day, it was bacon grease!)to cover the bottom of skillet. Pour in the batter and let it brown, then turn it over and begin cutting it with butter knives until the pieces are about the size of marbles(personal preference).Once the pieces are no longer sticky, turn the heat down to low and continue to stir occasionally.
It can be eaten with syrup for breakfast, or with gravy.

This sounds just like Kaiserschmarrn. One of my husbands favorite dishes.

Could this be what is called Kaiserschmarrn?
