  • Place a large pot filled with salted water and bring to boil.

  • Combine eggs, salt, and water, beating well with a whisk.

  • Add flour, a little at a time.

  • Add only enough flour to make a soft, sticky dough.

  • Let the mixture rest for about 10 mins.

  • Beat the mixture again.

  • Using the side of a teaspoon, spoon a small amount of dough into boiling water.

  • Dipping the spoon in the hot water will remove the dough from the spoon (if you have a spaetzle maker, that makes it easier as you want very small noodles).

  • The noodles are done when they float to the top.

  • Remove from water with a large slotted spoon, and place in a colander.

  • Rinse with cold water.

  • You may want to make the dumplings in 2 or 3 batches so they don't overcook.

  • Serve with chicken paprikas.

  • The dumplings are also nice added to a stew.

  • You can heat the dumplings in a frying pan with melted butter.

  • Do not let the dumplings get too brown or crisp.
