Directions

  1. Place flour in a medium bowl, making a well for the eggs. Introduce the eggs, and mix with a fork; then knead to form a stiff dough. Pinch off half-inch pieces of batter with fingers, and cook in a large pot of boiling water until dumplings float to the top, 5 to 15 minutes.

Pretty good stuff! I made the dough as stated. For pinching, every third dumpling or so I dipped my fingers into some flour; otherwise the whole glob just kept sticking to my fingers. I made them a bit bigger but they were still cooked all the way through; I cooked them in beef broth with a clove of garlic added in. Sprinkled with parsley right before serving; next time I will try adding some herbs to the dough itself. So good for how simple this recipe is, thanks!

I make the same thing but very slowly add water to a paste consistency. My grandmother used to make this & when she couldn't find her Spaetzle press, she spooned in about 1/4 tsp. at a time into boiling water, submerging the spoon in the water, so it cleans off and other spaetzle don't stick to the spoon. Even my finicky eaters LOVe these and I have to quadruple the recipe - STILL not enough!

Excellent. Followed recipe exactly as is, turned out perfect.Dough is rather sticky to pinch off into small pieces but they turned out like tiny dumplings.Very good.
