Authentic German Spaetzle is a German dumpling formed from a simple dough that's pressed through a colandar or a spaetzle maker, then boiled. They are hearty and tender and a delicious side for just about any German dish!
¼cupbutter or margarinemelted
Combine flour, salt and pepper in a medium-size bowl; make well in center. Add eggs and water to well and mix thoroughly.
Heat a large pot of generously salted water to boiling over medium heat.
Scoop dough into a Spatzle Maker and press through the holes into the boiling water. If you do not have a spatzle maker tool, you can scoop up dough on a large wooden spoon and cut off small pieces with knife into boiling salted water. As spatzle rises to the top, scoop out with slotted spoon and put in a covered bowl until all are cooked.
If desired, toss with melted butter; keep warm.
