Description

An authentic family recipe. Much lighter than typical spaetzle recipes due to the inclusion of seltzer water.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Flour
  • 5 whole Eggs
  • 2 teaspoons Salt
  • 1 cup Seltzer Water

Preparation

Mix flour, eggs and salt in a mixer until well blended. Add seltzer water and mix on medium high speed for approximately 4 minutes or until small bubbles form in the batter at rest (note: my mother-in-law will only mix this by hand using a whisk, but I like using the electric mixer and do not see any real difference in the quality of the noodle). Scoop batter into a potato ricer and press into boiling water. Noodles cook very quickly (approximately 1-2 minutes) and are done when they float to the top of the water.

Noodles are best cooked in small batches so they do not stick. Place cooked noodles in a 9×13 dish and top with a mixture of buttered bread crumbs (1 stick butter melted with bread crumbs added). Serve with your favorite gravy and main dish.

Oh my gosh! That looks amazing! My husband and I make fresh noodles all the time, but never from a batter such as this. Maybe I’ll sneakily give it a try this weekend to see if I can do it, then have him taste it when he gets home on Sunday if it comes out well. Thanks for the neat-o recipe.
