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 cup 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.
