Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup; level off. In large bowl, combine flour, ¼ tsp salt and nutmeg. By hand, beat eggs into flour mixture. Gradually adding milk, stirring constantly until mixture forms a smooth, soft, moist dough. If dough is too thick, add additional milk 1 T at a time. Dough should easily flow through holes in a colander when pressed with a spoon.

In large pot, bring water and remaining salt to a boil. Press spaetzle dough, a small amount at a time, through colander with large holes (not slits), or drop by ¼ tspful, into the boiling water. After water returns to a boil, cook uncovered for 5-7 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Remove with a slotted spoon; drain.

Repeat with the remaining dough. Use in soups, stews, tossed in with veggies, or as a buttered side dish. Makes 2-½ cups. Can be made a
