SpaetzlePrep: 5 min Cook: 6 min Servings: 4by John Spottiswood300 recipes>
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.
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 5 eggs
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 3/4 cup water
- In large bowl, combine flour, eggs, olive oil and salt. Add water a little at a time, stirring in to form a soft dough.
- 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.
