    About this recipe: I am from Germany and this was one of my favourite foods to make. Homemade authentic spaetzle with sauerkraut and breadcrumbs sauteed in butter. Delicious.

    Serves: 6 

    • 15 ml vegetable oil
    • 530 g all-purpose flour
    • 20 g salt
    • 8 large eggs
    • 235 ml water
    • 1 (14.5 ounce) can sauerkraut
    • 115 g butter
    • 25 g plain bread crumbs

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Fill a large saucepan with water, add oil and bring to the boil.
    2. Place the flour in a large mixing bowl and make a well in the middle. Add the combined salt, eggs and water and beat until the mixture is smooth and bubbly. The dough should have a thick consistency. Fill a spaetzle press with the dough and squeeze into the boiling water (You can use a colander to push the dough through).
    3. Cook until the spaetzle float to the surface and then drain. Place half of the spaetzle in a large ceramic serving dish and cover with a layer of sauerkraut. Add another layer of spaetzle and sauerkraut. Cover the pan to keep the dish warm.
    4. In a separate pan melt the butter and add breadcrumbs just long enough to moisten them. Sprinkle the breadcrumbs over the spaetzle and serve,
