    Sage's Note:

    Home made German dumplings. If you can find a Spaetzle maker, it makes the job easier.. The chef in the family, my son, tells me that they are better, if you melt some butter and sauté a chopped onion, then you add your cooked spaetzles, let them absorb the flavour and serve. He is right.

      Am I allowed to give 100 stars? Saw this on one of the food network shows but didn't jot down the recipe, so I tried yours. I have no idea if I did it right since I've never had spaetzle before, but I do know it was DELICIOUS!!!! I added a little garlic powder to the batter and it was perfect just like that... I put some butter on it but it probably didn't even need it! Thank you for sharing!!!
