I got this recipe from FoodNetwork

I have found that going Gluten Free works better if you are using a cheese grater to make the spaetzle through a cheese grater


1 Cup all - purpose flour 5.7 oz or 1 Cup Bobs Red MIll 1 to 1 Baking Flour if you need gluten free
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground pepper
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
2 Large eggs
1/4 Cup milk
3 Tbsp unsalted butter
2 Tbsp minced fresh chives (optional


In a large bowl, combine the flour, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. In another mixing bowl, whisk the eggs and milk together.
Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the egg-milk mixture. Gradually draw in the flour from the sides and combine well; the dough should be smooth and thick. Let the dough rest in the fridge till water is boiling
Bring 3 quarts of salted water to a boil in a large pot, then reduce to a simmer.
To form the spaetzle, hold a large holed colander or cheese grater over the simmering water and push the dough through the holes with a spatula.
Do this in batches so you don't overcrowd the pot.
Cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until the spaetzle floats to the surface, stirring gently to prevent sticking.
Dump the spaetzle into a colander.
Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat and add the spaetzle; tossing to coat. Cook the spaetzle for 1 to 2 minutes to give the noodles some color, and then sprinkle with the chopped chives and season with salt and pepper before serving.
