directions

  • Mix eggs, flour, and milk. Add seasonings to taste. (Batter will be pretty thick.).
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to boil.
  • Using a spaetzle maker or colander (or anything that has holes in it), push batter through the holes into boiling water.

    I used this recipe for the noodles portion of a Bavarian Pork Tenderloin Stew I made this evening for supper. This spaetzle recipe augmented the stew very nicely. It was easy to make and had a lot of flavor. It can stand on its own as a side in many German recipes. Thank you for sharing.

    I loved the taste of the spaetzle! However I chose to use a potato ricer to push the batter through which was a huge mistake. I either have to learn how to use the potato ricer better or find something better to use. This recipe is definitely going to be used once I can figure it out. <br/><br/>Made for PAC Fall 2012.
