Spätzle 



with butter crumb topping

mini dumplings



ingredients:
4 eggs (or more)
½ egg-shell of water for each egg used.

Enough flour to make a thick batter
A pinch of salt


Directions:
Crack the eggs into the bowl. fill half an egg shell with water and add,repeat 4 times. mix well
Beat until smooth. We are about halfway done here

Add the flour mix ...until you have a smooth tight batter but not likebread dough.  It is still
loose, but it leaves ripples As you stir it.

We are ready to cook the späetzle.

You will need a pan of boiing salted water.
Add a small amount of batter
Push the dough through the holes of the pan(A colander will do fine)with the wooden
spoon into the boiling water.
Repeat this with the remaining späetzle batter.

Cook the späetzle at least for 5 minutes after you have pushed all the dough through.
The späetzles will float when they are done.
Drain the Späetzles, rinse out the pan, then add 1 stick of butter and melt it on medium heat
I then add 3/4 Cup bread crumbs.
Brown the bread crumbs slightly
Add the späetzles and cook them for a few minutes on medium heat with the butter and
crumbs. This browns them just slightly and the butter and crumbs are absorbed into the späetzle.
Serve with Roasts, or stews like a Goulash
