Homemade Spaetzle: How to Make Cheesy Spaetzle in Under 40 Minutes!

Italians love their pasta – and Germans love their spaetzle. Spaetzle is the perfect resting place for roasted meats or as a side dish, like this easy recipe.

You’ll need:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • black pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup of your favorite cheese, shredded 
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • flat-leaf parsley or sage leaves

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Combine the flour, salt, pepper and half of the cheese. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk and eggs. Gradually combine until a dough forms. Let it rest 15 minutes.
  2. Bring a pot of salted water to boil. Place a colander with large holes over the pot of water. Put the dough in the colander and push it through the holes using a spatula or spoon into the water. Do this in batches.
  3. Cook each batch of spaetzle for about 3-4 minutes, or until they float. Remove each batch to a large bowl of cold water.
  4. Melt the butter in a skillet. Add the drained spaetzle and cook, stirring, until they begin to lightly brown, about 5 minutes. Stir in the remaining cheese and sprinkle with parsley or sage.
