This was my first time making spaetzle. I added some sauteed onion, bacon and tomato concentrate to my dish and loved every bite. It makes a tasty side dish that would compliment any meal. My colander didn't have big enough holes so I ended up using my potato masher. I enjoyed this dish so much that the next day I ordered a spaetzle maker online. I am looking forward to making this again with the spaetzle maker. Made for May 2012 Aus/NZ Swap.

Love spaetzle and this is no exception! A very easy recipe, especially because I used my stand mixer and then the spaetzle maker. I also lightly crisped up some diced pancetta in a pan while making and cooking the spaetzle, so the whole process took about 15 minutes. We like to fry up the cooked noodles in a pan just a little bit but you have to make sure to not overcrowd the pan or the noodles will steam instead of crisping. I got a nice yellow colour for the noodles because I like to use organic eggs and they have nice bright yellow yolks. Made for PRMR and will make again. Thanks awalde! :D

WOW, alwade, this recipe is amazing! It works out so beautifully even for someone who has never made spaetzle before. The dough was silky and soft and so nice to work with. I used my colander and it worked like a charm. My spaetzle came out a bit shorter than normally, but that was fine with me. They were super tasty and had the perfect consistency. Thank you so much for sharing this genius tip with us about using the colander, I would have never thought of that.
I added 1/4 ts nutmeg, freshly ground black pepper and only about 1/4 ts salt to the dough. YUM!
THANK YOU SO MUCH for this amazing recipe, Ill make it again and again, Im sure.

I almost broke my blender. This is way too thick to do in a blender. Better to do it with a mixer.

This is the second time I have attempted to make spaetzle and this is the best recipe so far, tasty with the perfect consistency. I am definitely going to purchase a spaetzle maker and use this recipe again. I served this topped with German Style Sautéed Beef for a very delicious Sunday dinner. Thanks! Made for More Than Sauerkraut & Dumplings in the German Forum.

Wow, what a great spaetzle recipe. Nice and light and perfect texture. I am so happy I choose this recipe as it was great to serve with Delicious Saucy Carrots
I didn't have spaetzle maker so I had a bit hard time to press batter it seem to be too thick so I added little bit of milk to make the batter more loose consistency.
Definitely keeper! Made for February 2012Au/Nz Swap recipe. Thank you Awalde!

I LOVE SPAETZLE!!! Thanks for posting this simple recipe to put together. Now it makes me think of my childhood growing up and Mom making this alot for me. I used the spaetzle maker that my sister bought me. I topped ours with swiss cheese just like Mom used to do. Delicious! Made for A-NZ Reunion Tag Game 2011.
