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..
