Spätzle is a German side dish. It is a type of soft egg noodle that is very simple to make and very delicious when paired with a traditional Bavarian meal.

As always, thanks for reading!

Step 1: Ingredients

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup milk

4 egg yolks

1 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons butter

Water for boiling – about 1 gallon

Step 2: Cook

In a medium bowl combine the flour and salt. Make a well in the center and add the milk and egg yolks. Mix until smooth, adding more milk if needed to make a slightly loose dough.

Bring the water to a rolling boil. Add a pinch of salt. Press the dough through a potato ricer, or a colander, into the water. Boil for five minutes then drain well.

In a large skillet over medium heat melt the butter until it starts to brown. Add the spatzle and toss to coat. Cook for one minute.

Serve immediately with a sprinkle of black pepper..

Step 3: Serve It.

Serve it up with some traditional Bavarian cuisine like rotkohl, and schweinsaxe!

<p>Your result would be called Kn&ouml;pfle in Germany (Baden W&uuml;rtemberg that is) I&acute;m using the &quot;Sp&auml;tzleHex&quot; </p><p><a href="https://www.amazon.de/ORIGINAL-SP%C3%84TZLE-EINS%C3%84TZEN-ALLE-KOCHT%C3%96PFE/dp/B0028ZZ5ZU/ref=sr_1_1/253-3811759-4777312?ie=UTF8&qid=1472040365&sr=8-1&keywords=sp%C3%A4tzle-hex" rel="nofollow">https://www.amazon.de/ORIGINAL-SP%C3%84TZLE-EINS%C...</a></p><p>You get different forms of Sp&auml;tzle, ,y children love it. </p><p>My mother allways made &quot;g&acute;schabte&quot; therefore she used a spezial &quot;Sp&auml;tzlebrett&quot;. </p>
That's a neat kitchen gadget! I've never seen one those before. I assume the plates make different sized noodles? Thanks for commenting!
<p>You get &quot;g'schabde Sp&auml;tzle&quot; (scraped Sp&auml;tzle) if you use a small <br>cutting board, put the dough on it and use a knife to scrape a small <br>amount of dough into the boiling water. This is the traditional way. <br>Like in this pictur. <br></p><p><a href="http://www.prosieben.de/tv/galileo/rezepte/beilagen/schwaebische-spaetzle" rel="nofollow">http://www.prosieben.de/tv/galileo/rezepte/beilage...</a></p><p>In Germany you can also buy special Sp&auml;tzle Schaber :)</p>
<p>That's great information. I've only ever made it with a ricer, but I'd love to try it the traditional way. Thanks for reading!</p>
Speaking of which, I had Sp&auml;tzle und Roladen tonight for supper??
<p>Awesome! I had it for lunch. Thanks for reading.</p>
