HOMEMADE SPAETZLE, an old recipe, from Germany
Nancy J. Patrykus
My son was in the Air Force, stationed in Germany.
Him and his wife had off the base housing.
They rented an apartment on the second floor in a German couples farm home.
I went there for a visit, when there son was born. My first grand child.!
That is where I meet this wonderful landlady that shared many recipes with me.
- 4 c
- 1/4 tsp
- 1-1/2 tsp
- 1-1/3 c
- 5 large
- 1 Tbsp
- 3 qt
- water...for boiling
- 4-6 Tbsp
- 1/1/2 c
- later=====dry bread crumbs....if desired
If using a spaetzle maker,(like I did) or even a large hole colander, press a cup of the dough through the holes with the back of a large spoon over the boiling water.
Cook the spaetzle, stir occasionally, for about 4 minutes.
They will rise to the top of the pot.
Check a couple to be sure they are done.
They are so good...you will probably , test a few more!
