    • 29.58 ml butter (optional)
    • 59.14 ml breadcrumbs (optional)


    1. 1
      In a medium mixing bowl, combine flour and salt.
    2. 2
      Whisk together milk and eggs, then combine with flour & salt until you have a sticky, thick batter. If the mixture is still to dry, you can add up to 1/4 c extra milk.
    3. 3
      Extrude the batter through a spaetzle maker into boiling salted water. Cook for about 5 minutes or until all the spaetzle floats.
    4. 4
      Drain and serve tossed in bread crumbs (optional).
    5. 5
      For breadcrumbs- melt butter in a small skillet or fry pan and add bread crums, stir occasionally until crumbs are browned and smell toasty.
    6. 6
      Soup version- extrude spaetzle directly into boiling soup.

      I essentially halved the recipe and it still turned out great! I didn't have a spaetzle maker so I pushed the dough through a small colander and it worked just fine. At the very end, I dropped in some big chunks on accident and I liked the dumplings! I put a pad of butter underneath and poured the hot spaetzle over it. So yum! Thanks!

      This was very good!! I doubled the recipe and ended up reducing the amount of flour to make it easier to extrude. I also added a dash of nutmeg into the batter and then tossed with parmesan and butter after they had cooked. Since I didn't have a spaetzle maker, I put the batter in a bag with a small hole in it. The kids gobbled this up. Thanks for a great recipe.
