I have worked with a dozen recipe books and have combined all of their 
ideas into a simple recipe which has turned out rather simple.  It is all 
based on 1 cup of flour

1 cup flour
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp salt

combine the dry ingredients (add nutmeg to taste if doing it for German 
Cooking, omit if for Hungarian)
Add the milk and egg and let it form into a batter of sorts.

Meanwhile, have a wide pan of water with salt boiling.  

Take the batter and put it into a spaetzle maker, or I used a french fry 
basket, and rubbed it with the bottom of a spatula to break it up.

When the spaetzles float, use a slotted spoon and put them into a 
colander.  The above were used in sauer-braten, chicken paprikash, and 
fried in butter.  It is another trump card hidden up my sleeve.

Hope that you like it.
