3 ingredients plus seasoning.  Ready in minutes; fun to say and fun to eat!

  •  1.5 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • pinch of grated nutmeg
  1. Bring a pot of water to boil and salt generously.  Drop temperature to a simmer while you assemble the spaetzle.  Have a colander, rubber spatula and slotted spoon near by.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the flour with the salt, pepper and nutmeg.  In a small bowl whisk the eggs and milk together until combined.  Add the liquid to the dry and mix together.  A few lumps are fine.
  3. Move your bowl of batter over to the stove.  Bring the water back to a boil.  Transfer the dough to the colander and use the spatula to push the dough through the colander into the boiling water.  Give the spaetzle a stir and let them cook for 3 minutes.  Pull out of the water using your slotted spoon.
  4. This is where you have options!  Eat right away, topped with butter.  OR Mix the hot dumplings with a splash of milk, grated gruyere and sauteed onions, bake until bubbly. OR Put the cooked spaetzle into ice water to shock; drain and dry on a towel, saute in butter until golden when ready to eat.
