Recipe by BoxOWine
READY IN: 15mins




  • Place large pot filled with salted water and bring to boil.
  • Combine eggs, salt, and water, beating well with whisk.
  • Add flour, a little at a time.
  • Add only enough flour to make a soft, sticky dough.
  • Let mixture rest for about 10 mins.
  • Beat mixture again.
  • Using the side of a teaspoon, spoon small amount of dough into boiling water.
  • Dipping the spoon in the hot water will remove the dough from the spoon (if you have a spaetzel maker, that makes is easier as you want very small noodles).
  • The noodles are done when they float to the top.
  • Remove from water with large slotted spoon, and place in colander.
  • Rinse with cold water.
  • You may want to make the dumplings in 2 or 3 batches so they dont overcook.
  • Serve with chicken paprikas.
  • The dumplings are also nice added to a stew.
  • You can heat the dumplings in a frying pan with melted butter.
  • Do not let the dumplings get too brown or crisp.
