I'm in love with spaetzel.

There I said it.

I'M IN LOVE WITH SPAETZEL!!

My 2 year old just says, "Mm mmm mmmmmmmmmmmmm." As she eats it.

My boys 6 and 8, can't get enough.

I push it through my ricer -- works great; batter is 5 ingredients (eggs, milk, salt, nutmeg & flour). The biggest issue is to make sure you have plenty of water and it is high in the pot so the spaetzel don't touch as they come out of the ricer.

I want to play with adding stuff to the batter (chopped up rosemary, roasted garlic, etc.) but I don't want to mess with a good thing.

Anyone have any personal experience?
