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.
