Description

Unless you have a super German family member, it is likely you have never heard of spaetzle. And let me tell ya, you’ve been missing out! Spaetzle is a small dumpling that hails from Europe, most commonly from certain regions of Germany. It’s great to serve as a side dish in place of mashed potatoes or as the egg noodle in your favorite soup.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 2  Eggs, Beaten
  • ¾ cups Milk

Preparation

In a bowl, whisk flour and salt.

Make a well in the center of the flour and add eggs and milk. Gently fold flour into the wet mixture. The dough will be very sticky, but that is ok.

In a large pan over medium high heat, bring salted water to a gentle boil. Place the noodle dough in the bowl of a spaetzle maker and push the dough out into the boiling water. If you don’t have a spaetzle maker, put dough in a colander and push through the holes with a spoon or bench scraper.

Once all the noodles are pressed out, gently stir the noodles occasionally for 2–3 minutes until the spaetzle floats to the top of the pot. Drain and serve.
