When I first tried these homemade German noodles, I thought they were great but I wondered how anybody would have time to make them themselves. Boy, was I surprised to find out that making them is almost as easy as boiling water!

What You'll Need:
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons dried dill or mixed herbs (like dried chives, parsley, and basil)
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1 3/4 cups milk
What To Do:
  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, 1 teaspoon salt, the pepper, and dillweed.

  2. Make a well in the center and pour in the beaten eggs and milk; mix by hand just until smooth.

  3. Fill a large pot half-full with water and add the remaining 1 teaspoon salt; bring the water to a hard, rolling boil over high heat.

  4. Over the pot, with a wide, slotted spoon, scoop out a spoonful of the batter and shake it lightly until it breaks into strands that fall into the water; the pieces of batter will congeal to form spaetzle.

  5. When the spaetzle float to the top of the water, remove them with the cleaned slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Repeat until no batter remains.

Notes

Add spaetzle to any soup to make it homemade-yummy, serve it with any meat or chicken dish, or simply serve warm spaetzle plain, with butter or gravy, or topped with cheese.

My Polish aunt made something like this but used grated potatoes and would drop them into a big pot of boiling water. When we would have Czhinka (I know my spelling is off but it is pronounced Chinena) or the Polish Duck Soup....yep the black one....my aunt would tell us it was "Chocolate Soup" the "Potato Kluski's " were put in our bowl 1st and then the soup was put in. You could have it either "kitchen sink" or "strained". We grew to like the soup because we were not allowed to eat the kluski with out eating the soup.

Yes it will work in the speatzle maker jkschmid 5867446

Push the dough with a spoon through a sieve held over the boiling water to make it easier.

Is this dough firm enough to use in a spaetzle maker . I purchased one but have never used for lack of a recipe.

My hubby likes these with scrambled eggs for breakfast.
