  • Meanwhile, mix together flour, nutmeg, salt, and white pepper in a medium bowl.

  • Whisk eggs together in a small bowl. Add eggs alternately with milk to dry ingredients. Stir until smooth.

  • Working in batches, press dough through a spaetzle maker, or through a large-holed colander or metal grater, into simmering water. Cook 5 to 8 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon or spider and drain well.

  • Melt butter in a large skillet. Add spaetzle and cook, stirring gently, until heated through. Serve sprinkled with parsley.
