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


  1. Beat the eggs thoroughly. Add the milk.
  2. Beat in the flour, salt and pepper, mixing until the batter develops a stringy consistency. Let the batter rest for 10 minutes.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
