Spaetzle with Sage Butter

Yield:
4 to 6 servings
Level:
Easy
Ingredients
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh sage
Directions
  • Combine the eggs and milk. Combine the flour, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Using a wooden spoon add the liquid to the flour and mix to combine well. Mix the dough well and let rest for 10 to 15 minutes. Bring 4 quarts of water to a boil. Using a spaetzle maker (a utensil that resembles a food mill) or passing the dough through a colander, position the utensil over the boiling water. Pass the spaetzle dough into the water and allow to cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until the spaetzle floats to the surface. Use a spider strainer to scoop the spaetzle out of the water and place in a bowl. Melt the butter in a sauce pan, until it begins to turn brown. Add the chopped sage and pour the butter over the spaetzle and serve.
