Put flour in bowl, beat in eggs, salt and water until bubbles form in dough. Use two spoons to drop the mixture into boiling salted water...one spoon to hold the dough, another to scoop off the size of noodle you like. Let the noodles boil 3 to 5 minutes, then rinse with cold water. Melt butter and drizzle over the Spaetzle. Also delicious with brown gravy.

Personal Notes:
This recipe came from Pops, also known as Al's Grandfather Peterhans. Al's mother, also known as Nonie, loved to take leftover Spaetzle and brown it in a skillet with butter for breakfast. So good!
