  • 2
    large eggs
  • 2
    cups flour
  • 1
    teaspoon salt
  • 34
    cup milk
  • Optional
  • 2
    tablespoons butter (optional)
  • 14
    cup breadcrumbs (optional)

DIRECTIONS

  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine flour and salt.
  • Whisk together milk and eggs, then combine with flour & salt until you have a sticky, thick batter. If the mixture is still to dry, you can add up to 1/4 c extra milk.
  • Extrude the batter through a spaetzle maker into boiling salted water. Cook for about 5 minutes or until all the spaetzle floats.
  • Drain and serve tossed in bread crumbs (optional).
  • For breadcrumbs- melt butter in a small skillet or fry pan and add bread crums, stir occasionally until crumbs are browned and smell toasty.
  • Soup version- extrude spaetzle directly into boiling soup.
