This is a Spaetzle Maker
Spaetzle are Mini German Dumpling. They can be used as a side dish or in soups. I really like them with Schnitzel. We serve it with the Hunter sauce gravy mix by Maggie.
Here is a recipe for Spaetzle:
3 whole eggs
3 cups sifted flour
1/4 teaspoon of seasalt
1 cup skim milk
boiling water or broth
1. sift together flour and salt set aside
2. Beat eggs in electric mixer
3. add flour and milk alternating. starting with flour and ending with flour.
4. using the spaetzle maker...put the dough in the basket.. side back and forth over the boiling liquid. stir to keep them from sticking. they will rise to the top when the are done. Remove and place into a strainer.
you can add butter to them or saute them in butter til lightly browned.
I have tried to make these with out the maker..it is very hard.
These Spaetzle makers are easy to get online and the cost is under 12.oo.
