Spatzle is served in many
German homes at Christmastime.


(Serves 4)

2 eggs
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of grated nutmeg
1/4 cup plain or seasoned breadcrumbs
1/2 cup butter


Beat the eggs. Combine them with the flour, water, salt, baking powder, and nutmeg. Mix well. Drop a few small bits of the batter from a spoon into simmering salted water. Let boil for 4 to 5 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon. Cool briefly, then test the dumplings. They should be light in texture; if they are heavy, add several tablespoons of water to the batter and mix well. Repeat the cooking process until all the dough has been used, placing the finished dumplings in a bowl.

Saute the breadcrumbs in butter. Top the dumplings with the buttered breadcrumbs.
