    MBP's Note:

    You must have a spatzle maker to use this recipe! It is a grater with very large holes and a container that passes back and forth to press the rather runny batter through the holes.

      Yummy - just like my mom makes. But we found that there wasn't enough for two adults, and we're not especially big eaters. I recommend that you double the recipe if you have more than two eating.

      What a great idea to add chicken base /bouillon to the boiling water! Here is a neat hint I saw on Foodnetwork. Take one of those aluminum pie pans from a frozen pie shell. Poke it full of holes.(not too small). Pour/push the dough through this.Into the boiling broth. It works great. :-)

      I think I'm in love! LOL! This recipe was easy and sooo tasty. My kids will go nuts over this for sure. I liked the taste of the bouillon and only used about 8 cups of water to enjoy the flavour of it. I recommend using a spaetzle maker as it made the job very quick and easy. I bought one for under $10 and I know I'll get a lot of use out of it. If you want it for a side dish, 4 servings is fair. As a main dish, maybe 2 servings, but I would make more. Made for Spring 2009 PAC. Thanks!
