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.

  3. Make a well in the center of the flour, pour in the egg mixture.
  4. Beat with a wooden spoon until elastic feeling
  5. Bring some water to a boil, and push batter through a spaetzle maker. You can also just cut the batter into small sized pieces and toss into the boiling water (but it takes a while to cut all those pieces).

  7. Remove and drain.
  8. Before serving, melt butter and toss spaetzle over medium heat for 5 minutes.
