Ingredients

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.

    I have actually made his version - he's too cute for words in my book! - but ahh I digress, back to the spaetzle...it was amazing... it took me awhile to find the best 'sieve' to use to press the dough though, and having a bowl of iced water, actually helped me put the cooked spaetzle in until ready to be browned in a browned butter and fresh sage sauce.. oh my, oh me, oh that tyler florence guy!

    I haven't had spaetzle in years, I use to work for a German couple and they loved to cook for me...their spaetzle and potato pancakes were my favorite...I will have to give this one a go.
