When it comes to regional foods that stick to your ribs, the Germans have it down. From sausages and sauerkraut to pretzels and strudel it’s all delicious! There’s one thing that gets left out, but if you ask a true dutchy, Spaetzle is a staple. These little dumpling are simple, delicious, and go with just about anything…
6 oz Milk
12 oz Flour
2 T Whole Grain Mustard
Salt and Pepper To Taste
Mix the ingredients together.
Get a large pot of boiling water going and place a colander or a perforated pan over it.
Pour your dough into the colander. Using a spatula or a bowl scraper, force the dough through the holes into the boiling water.
Allow to boil until they’ve all started to float. Strain and cool.
Take a pan and brown some butter. Add your little dumpling delights and toss to coat. Let them sit to develop a little color on one side, then toss again. A little crisp is a deliciously good thing…
Serve as a side, in a soup, or a big heaping bowl of them…it’s not bathing suit season yet…enjoy!
