German Spaetzle Dumplings

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2012
WOW! I didn't have potatoes, was too lazy to make wide egg noodles, hubby doesn't care a lot about rice, what's a cook to do? Make spaetzle! This recipe is perfect!! Here are my tips: Before you begin, put a big ole pot of water on the stove to boil. Get a collander out and set it inside a pie pan or other shallow dish. Set this next to the stove. If you are a messy cook like I am, consider covering the work area around the stove and/or knobs loosely with tinfoil. This will make cleanup easy. For the easiest way to mix up the spaetzle dough, just put all the ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth, like a gooey glue. I used a ricer to make my spaetzle. I fitted the ricer with the medium hole disc and set it on a plate next to the stove. I turned out the dough from the food processor into a mixing bowl, then I could just scoop out the dough with a big spoon or a small measuring cup and fill the ricer. Since the ricer was on a plate, the oozing goo didn't go all over my cooking area. I picked up the ricer and held it over the boiling water and gently, slowly applied pressure and squeezed out the dough/batter. I cooked the noodles for about 5 mins., then drained in the nearby collander. After that, I warmed bacon grease in an iron skillet, sauteed the spaetzle for a few minutes and then dressed them with salt and pepper. I served mine with Hungarian Paprika Chicken. OH, heaven! This recipe is soo easy and really is the best. Thank you!!

Wheat Rosemary Crackers

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2010
Easy to make - easy to customize! Great, simple recipe. I used buttermilk in place of the water and 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil in place of the 1/3 cup of veggie oil. Also added a lot of chopped fresh rosemary - maybe 3 tablespoons. I roll out the dough on my Silpat mat and use a pie crust cutter to roll the lines and create little squares. Doing this lightly does ont hurt the Silpat mat and it makes for fast going. I also cook the crackers til almost done and then let them crisp up in the oven after turning off the heat. Great for my teenager's lunch box! Thank you for this recipe!!!
