Number of Servings: 4


    2 cups all-purpose flour
    2 eggs
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    Pinch of nutmeg
    1/2 cup water


In large bowl, combine flour, eggs, salt and nutmeg. Add water a little at a time to form a soft dough.
Boil 2 quarts of water in a large pot. Scoop some dough onto a large spoon and using a butter knife or small spoon cut small pieces of dough and drop into the boiling water in small batches. When noodles float to the top of the water they are done (3 to 4 minutes). Place cooked spaetzle in colander or bowl and set aside. Just before serving add back to boiling water for a minute to warm or fry in a small amount of butter for a few minutes.
