"I made this recipe to use instead of noodles in a Uber-Braten Kielbasa and Sauerkraut casserole. I used a spaetzle grater and they came out great."

"You can buy a spaetzle maker or potato ricer online for about $20 (get the kind that has 2 handles that you squeeze together) We got ours in Germany, but they are available here. It's the only way to make spaetzle."

"Not all of them floated, but it was easier than trying to force the dough through a collander."
