Spaetzle


Spaetzle is a type of egg noodle or dumpling found in German cuisine.  I find them delicious!  If you don't have a spaetzle maker, you can use a colander or the large holes of a box grater to push the dumplings into the boiling water.

SPAETZLE
2 C flour
1/2 C milk
4 eggs
Dash of nutmeg
2 T butter
1/2 C shredded Swiss cheese
2 T chopped Italian parsley

Mix the flour, milk and eggs together with a whisk.  Put a pot of water to boil.  Using a colander or the large holes of a box grater, push the batter through the holes with a rubber spatula into the boiling water in batches. Boil for about 2-3 minutes and drain.

Melt the butter into a skillet.  Add in the spaetzle and lightly brown. Turn off the heat and stir in the Swiss cheese and parsley.  Season with salt, pepper, and a dash of nutmeg.
