I made some spaetzle this week to accompany beef goulash, and it was really delicious. Spaetzle (or [I]Spätzle[/I]) are a type of egg noodle / dumpling that is popular in Germany, Austria, etc. We've had it before at German markets here in the UK, so I was keen to try it myself.\n\nBasically you make a dough from plain flour, eggs, milk and salt, and leave it to rest in the fridge for 30 mins. Then you set a colander over a pan of boiling water and push the dough through it into the water below. The little dumplings cook in about 2 minutes, so once they float to the top you scoop them out. \n\nIn practice it was pretty difficult to push the dough through the colander, so I have bought a spaetzle maker from Amazon that I'm looking forward to using. \n\nOnce the spaetzle are cooked you fry them in butter and season with salt, pepper and nutmeg.\n\nDelicious! :D\n\n[ATTACH=full]923[/ATTACH] \n\nNext time we are going to make kaesespaetzle which is like mac & cheese but made with spaetzle instead of pasta.
