Directions:
Sift together flour and salt, add beaten eggs, and milk, mix
well. Heat water to boiling in saucepan, add a sprinkle of salt
to boiling water. Then slightly tilt mixing bowl with batter in it
and with a butter knife scrape small slivers of batter into
boiling water. Allow the cooked spaetzle to float to the top of
the pan in a foamy top, then strain with a slotted spoon and
drop cooked spaetzle into an ice bath of water. Continue
cooking the spaeztle batter and placing cooked ones into ice
bath. When all the batter is finished then strain the cooked
spaeztle in a colander to drain. Once they have drained well
then you fry them in a frying pan with a sufficient amount of oli
to coat the bottom of the pan. Allow the spaeztle to brown well
on one side before you turn them to finish browning on the
other side.
