Spaetzle


Explanation:
Spaetzle are actually a German sort of noodle, which are a bit rougher and thicker than normal ones. You could call them German noodles, but you're probably best off leaving it untranslated.

You can find a recipe at:

Explanation:
Idem. See below.

http://www.aaltonet.com/spaetzle/spaetzle.html

Spaetzle [SHPEHT-sluh; SHPEHT-sehl; SHPEHT-slee] Literally translated from German as "little sparrow," spaetzle is a dish of tiny noodles or dumplings made with flour, eggs, water or milk, salt and sometimes nutmeg. The spaetzle dough can be firm enough to be rolled and cut into slivers or soft enough to be forced through a sieve, colander or spaetzle-maker with large holes. The small pieces of dough are usually boiled (poached) before being tossed with butter or added to soups or other dishes. In Germany, spaetzle is served as a side dish much like potatoes or rice, and is often accompanied by a sauce or gravy. The cooked spaetzle can also be pan-fried with a little butter and onions (usually a good left-over idea).

spaetzle


Explanation:
This is a type of very popular noodle made primarily in German-speaking countries from a dough made from flour and eggs which is then dropped into boiling water through a spaetzle maker (a device that sits over the pot of water which has a container into which you pour the dough, which then drops out of large holes in the bottom into the water). They can then be served, or further pan-fried in butter and served. In English they are called "spaetzle" and the spaetzle makers are marketed under the same name as well. A prominent North American cook book, "The Joy Of Cooking" has recipes for spaetzle and describes the spaetzle maker. If you wanted to contextualize "spaetzle" for your target readers, you might add that they are "German noodles".
