Spätzle recipe

Spätzle, also known as German egg noodles, are a delicious and versatile dish that can be served as a side or main course. This recipe yields light and fluffy spätzle that pairs perfectly with a variety of sauces and toppings.



- 2 cups all-purpose flour

- 4 eggs

- 1/2 cup milk

- 1/2 tsp salt

- 1/4 tsp nutmeg

- 1/4 cup butter

- Optional toppings: grated cheese, caramelized onions, herbs


1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, salt, and nutmeg. Make a well in the center and crack the eggs into it.

2. Gradually pour in the milk while whisking the eggs and flour mixture together until a smooth batter forms. The batter should be thick and slightly sticky.

3. Let the batter rest for about 10 minutes to allow the gluten to relax.

4. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Using a spätzle maker, a colander with large holes, or a slotted spoon, press the batter through the holes into the boiling water. Work in batches to avoid overcrowding the pot.

5. Cook the spätzle for about 2-3 minutes or until they float to the surface. Remove them with a slotted spoon and transfer to a colander to drain.

6. In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the cooked spätzle to the skillet and toss to coat in the butter. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the spätzle are lightly browned.

7. Serve the spätzle hot with your choice of toppings, such as grated cheese, caramelized onions, or fresh herbs.

Enjoy your homemade spätzle as a satisfying and comforting dish that is sure to impress your family and friends!
