I am heading up to New Hampshire in probably about 40 minutes. It’s been a hell of a work week so, I didn’t get to write this article ahead of time like I originally had planned. I think it was the full moon that made work so crazy. Anyway, a couple of weeks ago I had a huge craving for salty sausage so I made kielbasa. You can’t have kielbasa without some spaetzle. So I made some from scratch. If you don’t have a spaetzle maker or a food mill use a colander with large holes. I hope everyone has a great weekend!
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Pinch of nutmeg
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter
Bring a pot of water to boil. In a large bowl combine the flour, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Wisk in eggs and milk. Whisk until combined and smooth. Put food mill (colander, sloted spoon, or spatezle maker) over the boiling water. Push the mixture through the food mill into the water. Do not overcrowd the pot. Stir occasionally so the pieces do not stick together. Cook for 3-4 minutes. Remove from water and set aside.
Melt butter in a skillet. Add spaetzle and saute until golden brown (mine are darker then that because I like them crispy).
Serve warm and enjoy with some good kielbasa!
