spaetzle maker for Christmas doesn't mean I need to make it all the time. I know, I know. But I wanted to give this other recipe a try. I think this version is more in the pasta family, while the other recipe was a lighter version. Both are delicious, so it depends what you're in the mood for.
Spaetzle (Adapted from Martha Stewart)
1/2 c water
2 T olive oil
1/8 t salt
3 c flour
In a large bowl whisk the eggs. Add the water, nutmeg, oil, salt. Add 2 c of flour. Add remaining flour until dough forms (you might not need all the flour). Let rest in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
You know the drill from here. Have the ice bath ready. Boil the water and press through a colander or the spaetzle maker. Remove from the water when they float and put them in the ice water. Drain and Serve.
