Recipe by HELGA WENGLER for HOMEPLATE HOMESTYLE
2 eggs (beaten)
1 teaspoon salt
dash of nutmeg (optional)
1 ½ cup flour
1 cup water
In a large bowl, mix all ingredients and beat with wooden spoon until batter leaves the side of the bowl. Add more flour, if needed. Boil water in a large saucepan and add 1 tablespoon salt.
Spoon 2 tablespoons of batter onto a board. Using a butter knife, scrape thin slices of batter into the water. Boil for 5-7 minutes and transfer to a bowl and keep warm. Repeat till all the batter is gone. You may also use a spaetzel maker for this step.
Serve as a side dish, sprinkle with parmesan cheese or buttered breadcrumbs.
