DIRECTIONS

  • Mix eggs, flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt and the pepper.
  • Add milk or water (your choice).
  • Batter will be thick.
  • Heat water or broth of choice till boiling.
  • Add 1 teaspoon salt.
  • Press batter through colander (preferably one with large holes), a few tablespoons at a time, into boiling water.
  • Stir once or twice while boiling to prevent sticking.
  • Cook until dumplings rise to surface and are tender, about 5 minutes; drain.
  • Pour butter over dumplings.
  • NOTES: These free-form dumplings make an unusual side dish, sprinkled with grated cheese or toasted bread crumbs.
  • They can be made in hot broth instead of water, and some recipes instruct forcing the Spatzle dough directly into a boiling soup to cook, just minutes before the soup is brought to the table.
  • Spatzle is also delicious drained and then fried in a little butter or margarine.
