How to make it

  • For meatballs:
  • Combine egg, milk, bread crumbs, parsley, salt, 1/2 teaspoon dill weed and pepper.
  • Add ground beef and mix gently but well. Shape into 24 (1 1/2- inch) balls.
  • Brown meatballs in vegetable oil; drain fat. Add broth, mushrooms and onion.
  • Cover and simmer for 30 minutes.
  • Combine sour cream, flour and 1 teaspoon dill weed. Stir into broth. Cook and stir until mixture thickens and bubbles.
  • Spaetzle:
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • Combine flour and salt. Add eggs and milk; beat well. Let rest 5 to 10 minutes. Place batter in coarse-sieved colander or deep fryer basket. Hold over large kettle of boiling water. Press batter through colander with back of wooden spoon or spatula. Cook and stir 5 minutes; drain.
  • To serve, make a nest of spaetzle on a large platter. Spoon meatballs and sauce in center.
  • Note: Dill weed can be added to spaetzle batter for this dish. A spaetzle maker (found anywhere cookware is sold) can be used instead of a colander. A spaetzle maker resembles a large garlic press.

    I have a potato ricer. Can I use that to make the spaetzle? Haven't had any spaetzle since my tour of duty in Germany long long ago, before you were born.

    YIKES! I'm sad now.

    This sounds really good! I love spaetzle. My older daughter loves to make it. She's in the school's German Club and is the President. She is also taking German in school as well. We are of German descent too. Great recipes!
