Spaetzle - Basic Recipe - Art Culinaire Issue

READY IN: 30mins
Top Review by David Cansler

Recipe did not result in expected product. Noodles were BLAH, did not hold form well. By far, this is not one of the better recipes I have used for Spatzel. A little tweaking is required. Most likely I will stick with my Grandmother Stroud''s tried and true recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring a saucepan of salted water it a boil, reduce the heat, and maintain a simmer.
  2. In a bowl, stir all the ingredients together.
  3. Place a colander over the pan, pour about 1/4 of the batter into the colander, and press through the holes with a plastic spatula into the hot water.
  4. When the spaetzle starts to float to the surface, cover the pan and keep covered until the spaetzle appears to swell and is fluffy.
  5. Remove the dumplings and repeat the procedure with the remaining batter.
