Homemade Spätzle / Knöpfle.

You can have Homemade Spätzle / Knöpfle using 5 ingredients and 12 steps. Here is how you achieve it.

Ingredients of Homemade Spätzle / Knöpfle

  1. You need of flour.
  2. Prepare of egg.
  3. Prepare of nutmeg (optional).
  4. It’s of salt.
  5. You need of sparkling water or cold water (adjust as needed. Can vary greatly depending on flour).

Homemade Spätzle / Knöpfle step by step

  1. In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients..
  2. The batter should be about as thick as a pancake batter. (add more water or flour if you need to adjust)..
  3. Bring a large pot of water to boil and add 1 or 2 tsp salt to it. Next I'll introduce 2 ways to make spätzle – one with the cutting board and one with a wide hole colander/tray. (If you have a spätzle press you probably know how to use it…).
  4. CUTTING BOARD METHOD: Place a ladleful of the batter near the edge of you cutting board. Hold it on the edge of the pot over the boiling water and flick off noodle-shaped pieces in to the pot..
  5. The resulting spätzle will be kind of unevenly sized and shaped but bigger and fluffier than the colander/tray method..
  6. WIDE-HOLED COLANDER/TRAY METHOD: If you have a colander or flat tray with wider holes, you can make spätzle with it! Simple hold it over the water and press spoonfuls of the batter into the pot..
  7. With this method you'll get cute, smaller and round spätzle ^^.
  8. LAST STEPS: Boil the batter in 3 batches so the pot doesn't get over crowded. When the spätzle float to the top they are finished (usually 2-3 minutes)..
  9. Scoop the spätzle out into a bowl of cold water with a strainer in it. This will prevent them from turning into a big clump. Continue cooking the rest of the spätzle. When finished drain and use as desired! Some suggestions below..
  10. Spätzle are great with sauces, stewed meats, gravies, etc. This photo I served them with a paprika and tomato stew..
  11. They are great with creamy sauces, bacon and fish too. In this photo I put some chopped spinach in the batter and served with a creamy mushroom and crabs sauce..
  12. Of course there's the classic Schwäbisch Linsen mit Spätzle too, where a thick lentil stew is served over top the spätzle. See recipe here:
