Ingredients

  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour

Instructions

  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, pepper, salt and garlic powder. 
  • Add the flour to the eggs a little at a time until the batter becomes thick and sticky. 
  • Bring a large pot of water to boil on your stove top. 
  • Put a spaetzle maker on top of the pot of boiling water. Pour the batter through the spaetzle maker into the boiling water, by sliding the hopper back and forth so that the little dumplings start to form and drop into the pot of boiling water.
  • Turn the heat under the pot down to medium. Then let the spaetzle cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. When it’s done, drain it through a colander in your sink.
  • Serve and enjoy!
