Hearty wholewheat spatzle is delicious with a hungarian dish called Rakott Kaposzta (separate posting) and cucumber Salad (also separate posting). I like the pinch of nutmeg. Spatzle is served in lieu of pasta, dumplings, rice or potatoes. You may want to adjust the flour egg ratio, you can tell when you are pushing the spatzle through the colinder. Of course if you have a Spatzle maker all the better but the colinder works. There are many different recipes for Spatzel. Some use white flour, some have no milk and what you serve it with is up to you.
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 cup milk
- 2 eggs
- 1⁄4 cup butter, melted
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 pinch nutmeg (optional)
- salt & pepper
