Spaetzle

Updated: Friday, February 7 2014, 11:35 AM EST
Servings: 6

INGREDIENTS:
1 cup A.P. Flour
1 tsp. Salt
½ tsp. pepper
½ tsp. nutmeg
2 Large Eggs
¼ cup Milk
3 TBS butter
2 TBS fresh chopped chives

DIRECTIONS:
In a large bowl combine the flour, salt, pepper and nutmeg. In another bowl whisk the eggs and milk together. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour the liquid into that well. Slowly mix from the side the dry into the wet and combine well. The dough should be smooth and thick. Let this rest for about 15 minutes. Bring about 3 quarts of water to a boil and season with salt. Reduce this to a simmer. To form the spaetzle, hold a large holed colander or slotted spoon over the water and push the dough through the holes with a spatula or spoon. You will want to do this in batches so as to not over crowd the pot. Cook the spaetzle for 3 to 4 minutes or until the noodle floats to the surface, stirring gently to prevent sticking. Place the noodle into a colander and quick rinse with cool water. In a sauté pan heat and melt the butter. Cook the spaetzle in the butter for 2 -3 minutes to give the noodles some color. Sprinkle with the Chives and season with salt and pepper. You can omit the rinsing of the noodle and go directly into the hot butter if you like, the starch that would have been rinsed off will help thicken the butter and create a sauce of sorts if you like.Spaetzle
