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
2 eggs

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.
