  1. Prepare spaetzel: Combine the dry ingredients (add a bit of nutmeg to taste if doing it for German Cooking, omit if for Hungarian)
  2. Add the milk and egg and mix together into a batter of sorts.
  3. Meanwhile, have a wide pan of water with salt boiling.
  4. Take the batter and put it into a spaetzle maker, or I used a French fry basket, and rubbed it with the bottom of a spatula to break it up.
