Making Spaetzles! A nice addition for homemade soup!

You may want to say this recipe idea for fall.  They are not difficult to make and I just saw one of these gadgets at the Kitchen store when shopping. 


Today was a soup day in our house.  I was going to make some box noodles but when I got to thinking I thought some spatzeles might be the right choice for this broth.

They're really an easy way to add some substance to your broth.  My family likes lots of noodles and little broth.  I like it both ways.  Here are the easy steps to making them.

My little suggestion: As another option these delicate noodles are also good lightly seasoned with butter or olive oil and a bit of parsley and grated cheese.

Chicken, carrots, celery and of course homemade spaetzles!

Spaetzle maker

Batter will be on the thicker side

Spoon by large tablespoons into top part of spaetzle maker

Push quickly back and forth into boiling lightly salted water

Boil slowly until the noodles come to top

Drain and rinse if putting in soup

If using as a side or meal.  Drain but do not rinse.  Add butter, or olive and grated cheese.  Yum


Use either homemade chicken soup with carrots, celery and onion or canned broth. You can add 1can of cream corn and 1 can kernel corn to make some chicken corn soup if you like too! I broke up some of the chicken into pieces and added it.  We like lots of stuff in our soup!

Happy Cooking from my kitchen to yours,
