After traipsing around Germany last summer, this recipe caught my eye. Can I make spaetzle? The shape comes from putting the batter through a colander -- which could be entertaining (or disastrous?) -- but it has to be worth it for food that is both dumpling and noodle. Comfort food heaven.

    I agree. Real German Spaetzle is divine. Just FYI- If you pick up a potato ricer (Williams-Sonoma carries them) you can use it to push the dough through rather than the colander, which makes the process much easier.

O Pistachio/ Several main dish recipes for things like Pork Chops w/apple and sage, turkish meatballs, and Thai Beef w/chili and mint

Breakfast is super important, but it doesn't have to be boring. Spread your toast with all sorts of good stuff and seize the day!

Colander Spaetzle: Living in Germany now...must cook and eat like a local

Spaetzle... looks yummy! I will definitely have to try this!!

Basic spaetzle. We don't have a fancy spaetzle-press; just push the dough through a large-holed colander like suggested.


Awesome recipe for spaetzle. Super easy to make and very tasty! Made this tonight with chicken schnitzel and cucumber salad.
