This is my grandmother's version of spaetzle. I would imagine she got the recipe from her mother, who left Germany when she was a teenager. It is different from those noodley little things you get in a restaurant. These are more like little dumplings.

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

2
eggs
1/2 c
water
1 1/2 c
flour
1/2 tsp
salt
1/4 tsp
baking powder

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Lightly beat eggs. Add water. Mix dry ingredients together and combine with eggs and water.
2
Drop small bits of dough from the end of a teaspoon into boiling salted water. Do not crowd. You may have to do a couple of batches. Once they rise to the surface (almost immediately), cook for an additional 1-2 minutes. Drain.
3
This next step is optional. I melt butter in a skillet and pan fry until lightly browned on each side. If you prefer, you can serve them straight from the boiling water.
