Ingredients
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 pound smoked bacon, diced
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Chopped fresh parsley leaves, for garnish
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Directions

In a medium bowl, combine the flour, salt, and nutmeg. In a separate bowl, combine the eggs and milk. Add the egg mixture to the dry ingredients and stir until smooth; let stand for 30 minutes. Press the batter through a sieve into boiling salted water. Cook about 1 minute. Drop cooked spaetzle into ice water. Drain spaetzle and set aside.

In a skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat until golden, about 4 to 5 minutes. Add onions and cook until soft, about 4 to 5 minutes. In a separate skillet, saute the cooked spaetzle in the oil until golden. Add the bacon mixture, season as needed with salt and pepper, and garnish with chopped fresh parsley.
