SpaetzleFrom turtle66 7 years ago
How to make it
- In a large bowl, combine the flour, salt, pepper, and nutmeg.
- In another mixing bowl, whisk the eggs and milk together
- Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the egg-milk mixture
- Gradually draw in the flour from the sides and combine well
- the dough should be smooth and thick. Let the dough rest for 10 to 15 minutes
- Bring 3 quarts of salted water to a boil in a large pot, then reduce to a simmer. To form the spaetzle, hold a large holed colander or slotted spoon over the simmering water and push the dough through the holes with a spatula or spoon. Do this in batches so you don't overcrowd the pot. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until the spaetzle floats to the surface, stirring gently to prevent sticking. Dump the spaetzle into a colander and give it a quick rinse with cool water
- Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat and add the spaetzle; tossing to coat. Cook the spaetzle for 1 to 2 minutes to give the noodles some color, and then sprinkle with the chopped chives and season with salt and pepper before serving.
