Start a Pan of Boiling Water
2.Add 1/2 cup of flour and Beat until smooth.
3. Add more flour and continue to stir till you have a stiff batter.. It will start to leave some ripples in the dough as you stir. This means it is developing some gluten. The dough should be a lot thicker than pancake batter but not as much as bread dough. let the dough sit a few minutes.
Cooking the Spaetzle. Put your tool over the boiling water.
4. Pour in a small amount of batter and push the dough through the holes of the pan with the wooden spoon into the boiling water. Continue adding the rest of the batter a little at a time and push the dough through.
5, Lift the Spaetzle out with a skimmer or slotted spoon and place in a serving bowl. If your going to serve them another day rinse, cool and toss with a little oil.
6. Butter Crumb Topping
Serve with a Stew or Roast. The Spätzles are great with gravy also.
