Boy does this bring back childhood memories. Mom was German and she made this alot for us. My sister bought me a spaetzle maker and I've been waiting to try it. It turned out excellent!!! The only part I didn't like was I was sweating quite profusely standing over the steamy water. Oh well, price you pay for delicious food. Thanks for posting this one! Made for Rookie Tag Game 2013.
In 63 years on this planet, I had never eaten Spaetzle (wasn't even sure what it was), much less make it. I will be making up for lost time now. I did the colander method, but I think I am going shopping for a spaetzle maker. The herbs and nutmeg were delicious in this. I am going to try it with fresh sage next time. Very easy recipe. I wasn't sure what the ice water was for (it doesn't say) so just skipped it, as the previous reviewers stated. Served it as a side to Swiss Steak. Made for ZWT 7.
This was a different way to enjoy egg noodles. We liked the subtle flavor the nutmeg gave them. I used my potato ricer, and skipped the ice water step and drained them in a colander. The spaetzle didn't get crispy when I sauteed it, but it was very good! ZWT7 - Shady Ladies
Yum! We really enjoyed this tonight with German Meatballs. I made the batter as directed but I didn't put the spaetzle in ice water. Whenever I make it, I just scoop it directly into a frying pan. I also use a spaetzle maker and haven't tried making it any other way, so I personally don't know how well a colander works. Very nice! Made for ZWT6. Thanks Dr. Jenny! :)
