My German grandmother always served these when she made pot roast when we were growing up. We drooled with anticipation.

    My Grandmother placed some dough on a wooden cutting board and scraped with sharp knife direct in cooking salt water. Aaaah

    These were really good. I have been craving them. I even got my picky daughter to eat them. They are so good sauted with the onions and butter, especially when the onions get sweet and caramelized. I had a really hard time at first. I tried using a spoon to drop them in, but that didn't work. After several different attempts, I figured something out. I used a big slotted spoon and used a spoon to squeeze the dough through the slots. It took me forever. I would like to make these again, but I would like an easier method. I will probably wait until I have a spatzel maker to make it less work. They did taste really good though.

    Holy Yum!! Better than the restaurant! Thanks so much! We pushed the batter thru a collander (strainer) a technique I saw before, so they were tiny, which I love! Soooo good...Hope you like my photos!
