Spätzle - German hand made egg noodles

For search purposes, spaetzle is how it’s spelled if it’s hard to put an umlaut in.

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup milk

This is a very basic recipe. For Orcas we did 1.5 times this amount for 4 people, who all had seconds, and we had 2 servings left over.

Spätzle Maker

It’s easiest to make spätzle with a maker of some kind. We have the cheese grater with a dough holder on top kind.

Here’s a spaetzle maker on Amazon for $25CAD

The eggs I had were a little small so I used 5.
