Yield: six portions


2 each large eggs
3/4 c. milk
2 c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper

Beat the eggs thoroughly. Add the milk.

Beat in the flour, salt and pepper, mixing until the batter develops a stringy consistency. Let the batter rest for 10 minutes.

Pour the batter into a large-holed colander. Force the batter through the holes (using a scraping motion with a rubber spatula) into a large pot of rapidly boiling water.

Allow the spatzeli to cook for about 1 minute. They can be served immediately, or chilled in cold water and reheated for service at a later time.
