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.

I used this recipe for the noodles portion of a Bavarian Pork Tenderloin Stew I made this evening for supper. This spaetzle recipe augmented the stew very nicely. It was easy to make and had a lot of flavor. It can stand on its own as a side in many German recipes. Thank you for sharing.

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!
