Chicken Soup with Spaetzle


12 cups Chicken Stock

6 carrots, peeled, diced small

4 celery stalks, diced small

1 large yellow onion, diced small

2 ½ tsp kosher salt

1 tsp black pepper


1 ½ cups Flour

1 ½ tsp salt

¾ tsp black pepper

¾ tsp nutmeg

3 eggs

2/3 cup milk

Put a pot of water on the stove and bring to a boil. While it is coming to a boil mix Spaetzle ingredients in a bowl and allow to rest for 5 minutes after mixing. To form Spaetzles you can use a colander over the pot of water and push to dough through the holes with the back of a spoon or use a Spaetzle maker.

Once the Spaetzles float they are cooked, drain in a colander and rinse with cold water for later use in this recipe

Put stock in a soup pot and bring to a simmer. Add carrots, celery and Onions to the broth and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes, Season with salt and pepper. Ladle into individual bowls with the Spaetzles.

I serve mine with good crusty rolls from our local Bakery
