Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup 2% milk
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 8 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Minced fresh parsley, optional

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, stir the flour, eggs, milk and salt until smooth (dough will be sticky). In a large saucepan over high heat, bring water to a boil. Pour dough into a colander or spaetzle maker coated with cooking spray; place over boiling water.
  2. With a wooden spoon, press dough until small pieces drop into boiling water. Cook for 2 minutes or until dumplings are tender and float. Remove with a slotted spoon; toss with butter. If desired, sprinkle with parsley.
