Winni Recipes | Easy German Spaetzle

Ingredients:

Equipment needed: Spaetzle Maker

· 4 cups all-purpose flour

· 2 tsp salt

· 8 large eggs

. ¾ cup milk, or water

Instructions:

1. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, eggs, milk, and salt. Stir until the batter is well combined and develops bubbles. You can also use a mixer. The batter should neither be too thin nor too thick or it will be difficult to make the spaetzle with your spaetzle maker. Let the batter sit for 5-10 min.

2. Put a colander into a bowl to drain the Spaetzle once cooked and bring a large pot of water over high heat to a boil, add about 1 Tbsp of salt to the water, and reduce temperature to a simmer.

3. Press batter through a spaetzle maker, a large, holed sieve or colander into the simmering water.

4. Work in batches, after using about ⅓ of the batter stop adding new spaetzle and let them cook for about 2-3 minutes, or until they float to the top. Stir occasionally. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the spaetzle to the colander so that excess water can drip off.

Serve the spaetzle immediately or sauté them in butter to crisp them up a little. If you don't serve or sauté them right away, add 1 or 2 Tbsp of butter to the hot spaetzle to prevent them from sticking together.
