“Spaetzle is a cross between a curly noodle and a small dumpling. It's a traditional German accompaniment to all types of roasts, especially sauerbraten.” —Patricia Rutherford, Winchester, Illinois

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine flour and salt. Whisk in eggs and milk until smooth.
  2. Fill a large stockpot three-fourths full with water; bring to a boil. With a rubber spatula, press dough through a colander into boiling water. Cook and stir gently for 4-5 minutes or until spaetzle float and are tender.
  3. Combine bread crumbs and butter. With a slotted spoon, transfer spaetzle to a large bowl; add crumb mixture and toss to coat.
