How to make it

  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, salt, pepper, caraway seed and nutmeg.
  • In another mixing bowl, whisk the eggs and milk together.
  • Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the wet ingredients to the dry ones.
  • Combine well until smooth. This will be somewhere between a dough and a batter, and it will be quite thick. Let it rest for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  • To form the spaetzle, press the batter through your handy-dandy spaetzle press into the water, one batch at a time, cooking for about 5 minutes, until the spaetzle is all puffy and have floated to the top of the pot. stirring gently to prevent sticking.
  • If you don't have a spaetzle press, you can use a large holed colander or slotted spoon over the simmering water and push the dough through the holes with a spatula or spoon.
  • Scoop out the spaetzle with a slotted spoon and set in a bowl to rest.
  • You can serve it like that, with a pat of butter mixed in or saute them in melted butter until slightly browned.

    I like to add a little mustard and thyme to mine. I'll have to try it with caraway...
