Spaetzle

recipe courtesy Emeril Lagasse

 

3 eggs

1 c. milk

1/4 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg

Kosher salt and freshly ground white pepper

3 c. all purpose-flour, or as needed

 

In a bowl whisk together eggs, milk, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Gradually stir in enough flour to make a thick batter. You will probably not need all 3 cups.

 

Using a metal colander set over a pot of boiling, salted water, press spaetzle batter through holes directly into water. When spaetzle are cooked through, they will float to the surface, about 5 minutes. Scoop up with a slotted spoon and drain well as they cook or drain all at once.
