      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.
