This is a simple and delicious recipe for Spaetzle. My friend Helmut normally does not add oil to his Spaetzle, but we did last night because it said to on the recipe on our Spaetzle maker. I think it helped make the dough slightly easier to work with and less sticky. Feel free to do without if you prefer.

  1. In large bowl, combine flour, eggs, olive oil and salt. Add water a little at a time, stirring in to form a soft dough.
  2. Boil 2 quarts of water in a large pot. Squeeze dough out into the water by pressing through a colander with large holes or by using a Spaetzle maker (sold new on Amazon for $8-10). When noodles float to the top of the water, they are done (3 to 4 minutes). Serve as a side or main dish.

      They also drain spaetzle and the fry in butter or bacon grease. Very good. My exchange student from Berlin taught this to me.

        Agreed Randy. If we weren't serving beef broth over the Spaetzle (which we usually do), cooking it in beef broth would add a nice flavor.

            Spaetzle is ALWAYS a crowd pleaser. In Germany, it is a staple, and I think they've got it right. We LOVE it. My kids like to help make it, cannot be stopped eating it, and ... well, cleaning up after it is not my favorite part (but it's worth it. Just make sure that no matter what you serve on it (meat sauce, just cheese, or cheese and ham), make sure there's some beer or wine on the table and left over to make the cleaning up a little more pleasant. Thanks John for sharing this incredible dish.

                I agree it is great with paprikash. I hope you'll post your favorite paprikash recipe for us to try Ludit!

                I made this and it turned out okay but it lacked the smoothness or most spaetzle and that spaetzle specific flavor. A little heavy.

                  My mother used to place the dough on a wooden board and with a knife cut off small bits and scrape them into the water, it worked well and there was no mess to clean up. Thanks for the recipe.

                  My grandmother and mother used to make this. They used a large fork to drip the mixture because the colander became so messy and difficult to clean. Thanks for reminding me about Spaetzle. It's perfect on cold fall and winter days.
