  • Set a large-holed sieve, colander, food mill, or potato ricer on a large piece of waxed paper. Pour the spaetzle batter into the sieve. Immediately hold the sieve over the pan of boiling water; press the batter through the sieve with a wooden spoon to form the spaetzle. Cook for about 5 minutes or until done, stirring occasionally. Drain well. Melt butter. Drizzle over hot spaetzle. Serve hot. Makes 4 servings.

Tips

To fry spaetzle, cook and drain as directed above. Do not drizzle with butter. Cover and chill thoroughly. In a heavy skillet, melt butter or margarine over medium-high heat. Add cold spaetzle and cook for 6 to 8 minutes or until golden, stirring occasionally. Serve hot.
