Ingredients for making German Spaetzle Dumplings

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 pinch freshly ground white pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Directions for making German Spaetzle Dumplings

  1. Fill a large pot halfway full with water and bring to a boil. Adjust heat so water just simmers.
  2. Meanwhile, mix together flour, nutmeg, salt, and white pepper in a medium bowl.
  3. Whisk eggs together in a small bowl. Add eggs alternately with milk to dry ingredients. Stir until smooth.
  4. Working in batches, press dough through a spaetzle maker, or through a large-holed colander or metal grater, into simmering water. Cook 5 to 8 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon or spider and drain well.
  5. Melt butter in a large skillet. Add spaetzle and cook, stirring gently, until heated through. Serve sprinkled with parsley.
