I made some spaetzle this week to accompany beef goulash, and it was really delicious. Spaetzle (or Spätzle) 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. Basically 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. In 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. Once the spaetzle are cooked you fry them in butter and season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Delicious! Next time we are going to make kaesespaetzle which is like mac & cheese but made with spaetzle instead of pasta.
