    This is a recipe to make mini German dumplings known as spaetzle. The dough is usually passed though a specialized spaetzle maker but you can get the same effect with a wide grater.

    Serves: 6 

    • 1 cup (125g) plain flour
    • 1/4 cup (65ml) milk
    • 2 eggs
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    • 1 pinch freshly ground white pepper
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 4 litres hot water
    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Mix together flour, salt, white pepper and nutmeg. Beat eggs well, and add alternately with the milk to the dry ingredients. Mix until smooth.
    2. Press dough through a large holed sieve or metal grater.
    3. Drop a few at a time into simmering liquid. Cook 5 to 8 minutes. Drain well.
    4. Saute cooked dumplings in butter or margarine. Sprinkle chopped fresh parsley on top, and serve.
