    MGT's Note:

    This recipe came from a German cookbook that my brother sent to me. You can do all the above before hand, less then 2 hours before you're ready to eat. It is especially good with the Jaeger Schnitzel sauce that can also be found on recipezaar.

      VERY good. I have been making spaetzle for years but wanted to tweak it. The nutmeg is a lovely touch. I did have to use more milk to get it to the stage I like best for the spaetzle maker (see photos) . My gramma told me that "once the batter starts to trail after the spoon, you're done." A thicker batter would work well if you are cutting it into the boiling water. Depending on what you are serving with this, you may want to make more. I served a beef & mushroom gravy over it, OH YUM! Thanks a bunch! UPDATE 4/21: made it again tonight by request, YUM!
