Spaetzle Recipe

Imagine, if you will, a recipe for the most wonderful, tasty home made egg noodle bits called Spaetzle,(Spätzle) after an old German recipe, with a modern twist.



2 Cups Flour
4 Eggs
1/2 cup water
1 tsp salt
Spices or seasoning like Pepper, Garlic Flakes or No-Salt Seasoning to taste


Large Mixing Bowl
Whisk or blender
Large Saucepan or Soup Pot and 2 liters of water, and 1 teaspoon salt
Large Spoon
Slotted or Perforated Spoon
Perforated Pizza Pan or Spaetzle Maker if you have one
Plastic Spatula or Pancake Lifter
(A metal one might do, but it would scratch the pizza pan)
Serving bowl


Put about 2 liters of water and a teaspoon of salt into the large saucepan, place on stove to boil while getting the rest of the recipe ready.

Put the flour, eggs, water, salt and spices into the mixing bowl and blend together.

Mixture should be thick enough to stick together well, but thin ehough to push through the holes in the Spaetzle maker or pizza pan. You will have to experiment with this to get it right. You can add a little bit more water at a time and work it into the batter.

When the water is boiling, and when the mixture is ready, put the Spaetzle maker or pizza pan over the water, spoon some of the mixture in/on and work it through the holes into the boiling water

When one batch is spooned through, let it boil for a minute, then scoop the finished Spaetzle into the serving dish. Repeat this until the dough is used up.

**Note--When using the Pizza Pan, make the mixture thinner if the pan has fairly small holes, so it will go through quickly. The steam heat from the boiling water can begin cooking the mixture while it's still on the pan. If this happens, no problem, drop the bigger lumps into the water and boil anyway, they just make bigger noodles.

Serve Spaetzle with your favourite meat, cheese or other sauce.
This is a very filling dish.
