    Better is still to mix the ingredients with a wooden spoon and give it a good beating with it until the dough becomes evenly smoth and elastic.

    I have never made spaetzle before & for a first time it was fairly easy but I will definitely get the right equipment next time ? I added Parmesan cheese to the batter and it was delicious. I made this to go along with chicken paprikash! Childhood memories! Mom would be proud!!!

    I almost broke my blender. This is way too thick to do in a blender. Better to do it with a mixer.

    This was my first time making spaetzle. I added some sauteed onion, bacon and tomato concentrate to my dish and loved every bite. It makes a tasty side dish that would compliment any meal. My colander didn't have big enough holes so I ended up using my potato masher. I enjoyed this dish so much that the next day I ordered a spaetzle maker online. I am looking forward to making this again with the spaetzle maker. Made for May 2012 Aus/NZ Swap.
