One of the things I love about trips to Michigan is a stop at Frankenmuth. One restaurant is famous for its fried chicken. A side dish I love is the spaetzel. It is a German staple cooked in butter and usually served with schnitzel. I hope you like it.
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon pepper
4 ounces butter
2 ounces Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon Pepper
Mix flour, salt, pepper, and nutmeg.
Mix milk and eggs and add to flour.
Boil 2 quarts water and 1 tablespoon of salt.
Using a large hole strainer, force batter through the holes over water.
Cook for 3 minutes and remove to a sheet pan and place in a freezer to stop cooking.
In a large skillet on medium, melt butter.
Add spaetzle and cook until brown on both sides.
Add cheese and pepper.
Garnish with parsley and chives.
