Don’t let the idea of homemade spaetzle scare you–once you make it, it’ll become part of your “wow” repertoire.


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon kosher or sea salt, plus extra to taste
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


In a small mixing bowl, combine flour and salt. Create a well in center of flour mixture.
In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Pour into flour well and mix slowly until a smooth batter comes together.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Using a rubber spatula, push batter through a large-holed colander (or a spaetzle maker) into boiling water.
Cook until noodles float to the surface; then use a slotted spoon to transfer to a bowl.
Season with salt and pepper; toss with melted butter and parsley.
