Serves Four | Prep Time 10 to 15 minutes | Cook Time Boil for 5 minutes


1 cup milk
2 1/2 cups flour
2 eggs
1 teaspoon salt
6 cups boiling water
1 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs

Add milk to flour slowly, stirring constantly to keep mixture smooth.

Add one egg at a time, beating well after each addition.

Add salt and mix well.

Into separate kettle, pour boiling water, add salt and set over low heat so water is kept at simmer.

Pour batter into a shallow bowl, tilt it over kettle and with a sharp knife slice batter into boiling water, being sure to dip knife into water before each slice to prevent batter from sticking to knife. Let boil for five minutes, then drain in colander.

Put in serving dish and top with bread crumbs which have been browned in butter.

Serve hot, with apple sauce

I found this recipe while searching on a North Dakota website. I do not remember which one. I have added it to my recipes due to the ease of making and the interesting combination as it is served with applesauce. To put a twist on this recipe I would saute the Spaetzle in the applesauce with a just a dash of butter and cinnamon. Typically serving this with left over pork roast from the night before.
