Wilkommen Old World German Restaurant
Spatzle (German Egg Noodles)


  • 6 whole eggs
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 to 3/4 cup water


  1. The best way to measure out the ingredients is to say you will need equal amounts of egg and flour. For instance 1 cup of eggs to 1 cup of flour. Mix eggs, flour, salt and nutmeg together. Add water gradually until batter is stiff but smooth. Using a perforated pan and the ball of your hand, push batter through holes into boiling salted water.
  2. There should only be one layer of spaetzle at a time in the cooking water. Stir the spaetzle with a spoon so that they do not stick together. Cook noodles for about 3 - 5 minutes. Remove spaetzle from water with a perforated spoon and place in a bowl if iced water to ensure not to overcook the noodles.
  3. To reheat spaetzle, sauté in a little butter and season before serving.

Servings: 6

Use CAUTION when cooking this dish, Make sure that the perforated pan can rest securely over the pan of boiling water.
