Spaetzle

The name spaetzle is German for "little sparrow," which is what the shape of these tiny noodles or dumplings resemble. Serve them as a side dish—tossed with a little melted butter like potatoes or rice, or topped with a creamy sauce or gravy. If you want to make them quickly, look for a spaetzle maker in your favorite kitchenware store.
