    Bergy's Note:

    Spaetzle are like noodles but better! They are served with many Hungarian meals and also Bavarian/German meals. They are used as the starch part of the meal in place of potatoes, rice or pasta Once cooked you can fry them in butter or just toss them with a little butter. Serve with gravy etc.your choice. The picture with the Spaetzle on the red plate is the way they look right after boiling them and have a little butter on them, they are quite good served plain like this. The photo in the fry pan is the way I like them most. I used a little bacon dripping, fried some onions and mushrooms added the cooked spaetzel and browned it very slowly took approx 30 minutes. Chopped bacon is also very good mixed in. Spaetzel is a nice change from regular pasta.

      This is very good!of course they are more trouble to make than cooking that dry kind but it is really worth it.

      This is probably the best thing to make for a dinner side-dish! But, you better have some extra time on your hands. This takes some effort and time. You get to have special time with your children (if they help) in making the noodles. To make even more fun with your kids, you should do this by hand. Add some paprika and nutmeg to make it even better!! HELPFUL TIP: MAKE THE NOODLES SMALL (ESPECIALLY IF YOU DO THEM BY HAND) SO THAT YOU CAN HAVE MORE. ----Heidi----

      I made this for a European dinner at our house and it was a big hit, bringing back memories of Germany for my in-laws. Had to roll them out by hand, but they were worth the extra effort.
