Spaetzle

5 Jun

Introduction:

Today we have a special guest, Adrienne, who taught TCF all about one of her favorite family recipes, Spaetzle (spet-zla, spat-zlee). Spaetzle is a German noodle that is made from egg and flour. As pastas go, this is a very easy recipe to make (especially if you have a spaetzle maker), and fairly hard to mess up. The Eric part of TCF had never eaten/made spaetzle before but is now a big time fan of it.

Ingredients:

  • 2.5 cups of flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
*This recipe feeds 4-6 people as a side dish.  Also, it can easily be doubled!

Cooking Instructions:

1.) Put a large pot of water on to boil. Combine ingredients in a bowl. Dough will be a sticky consistency.

2.) Grate mixture into boiling water

3.) Cook for about a minute after the spaetzle floats to the top, then skim them out of the water and place into a pot to keep warm

4.) Put a little butter and salt/pepper on the spaetzle, consume and enjoy. (Spaetzle also tastes fantastic when lightly fried in some EVOO or butter the next day)
