Category: Breads

 Ingredients List

  • 4 c Flour
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 c Water
  • 1 tb Salt


Prepare a firm dough from the eggs. flour, water and salt. Beat until it
comes eeasily away from the bowl. Form dumplings and cook in boiling salted
water. skim them from the top, dip in cold water and serve on a hot
platter. Spaetzle may also be browned in a little butter before serving. A
note... I have a wonder kitchen gadget - a spaetzle maker! You should be
able to find one for about $15/US at any quality kitchen store. It is the
BEST kitchen gadget I own! There are many ways to 'form' the dumplings. You
can do it by hand, though tedious, because traditional spaetzle is small. I
have read and tried to press them through a large-holed caulander, but it
doesn't work very well. The spaetzle maker is like a flat grater w/ a
sliding hopper on top. You place the dough in the hopper, place the gadget
over the pan of boiling water, and work the hopper back-n-forth...
wonderful, little dumplings drop into the pan! It wonderful! And best of
all, FUN! AND GOOD TO EAT! Try the leftover spaetzle for breakfast:
brown/fry it in a skillet and and cinnamon and sugar! My favorite main dish
for spaetzle is cutlets w/ paprika gravy. INCREDIBLE!
