When I think about visiting my grandma’s house as a child, the kitchen is always on my mind and generally she is there with her apron on, the flour bin open, kneading dough or cutting noodles. The woman made everything by hand. I decided to give her spatzle or German noodle recipe a whirl.
To make dough, in large bowl combine flour, salt and pepper. Blend in broth, eggs and milk. Add to flour mixture, beating until bubbles form (about 2 minutes).
To make the noodles, force dough through a large-holed colander, or place small amount of dough on the edge of a plate and tilt the plate, cutting off strands of dough into boiling salted water. Cook gently for 3-4 minutes or until they are all floating at the top. Rinse in cold water and drain.
In skillet, melt butter and saute spatzle until it is browned slightly. Remove from pan and sprinkle lightly with bread crumbs.
This is a stick-to-your-ribs, warm-you-up, side dish. This is not the conventional creamed spinach recipe that calls for tons of butter and cheese, it is low-fat and delicious. What is also great about this recipe is that it is a total “pantry” dish that is a quick go-to on a busy day.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
Heather is a Texas native and the blogger behind Heather's Dish. She's mom to Weston, wife to Nate, and they live in Little Rock, Arkansas with their two "stubborn and saucy" dogs Bunker and Keira. In her blog, she shares her photographs, random musings (serious and silly alike), and all kinds of scrumptious recipes---and not just evil variations of her favorite mac and cheese. Her enviable TK recipe box is a testament to that. Go see for yourself!
