When we went to Minnesota a couple years ago we went to a German store in New Ulm. I got this recipe from the owners of the store attached to a spaetzle maker that I bought. I love spaetzle because it is easy to make, delicious, and makes a unique side dish.
- 4 eggs, beaten
- 1⁄2 cup cold water
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 dash ground black pepper
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons butter
- Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. In a large mixing bowl stir together eggs, water, salt, pepper, and flour.
- Spoon batter into grater section of spaetzle maker and slide it quickly back in forth over boiling water. Boil for a few minutes or until spaetzle floats to the top, stirring occasionlly. Drain.
- Transfer spaetzle back to pot and gently stir in butter, until melted.
