Love this recipe! Simple, but delicious! I learned to make it in school originally, but have tweaked the recipe to add more flavor and make it more authentic.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix eggs, flour, and milk. Add seasonings to taste. (Batter will be pretty thick.).
  2. Bring a large pot of salted water to boil.
  3. Using a spaetzle maker or colander (or anything that has holes in it), push batter through the holes into boiling water.
  4. Spaetzle is ready when it floats. Remove with a slotted spoon to drain the water out.
  5. Add butter to a saucepan and melt over medium-high heat.
  6. Add spaetzle and saute. (Add onions and garlic for extra flavor.).
  7. Serve and enjoy!

I loved the taste of the spaetzle! However I chose to use a potato ricer to push the batter through which was a huge mistake. I either have to learn how to use the potato ricer better or find something better to use. This recipe is definitely going to be used once I can figure it out.

Made for PAC Fall 2012.
