With a spoon, begin cutting a small amount of batter from the edge of the plate or cutting board into the boiling water.

Or you can use a spaetzle maker.

Once the spaetzles rise to the surface, they only
take a few minutes to cook.

Remove the cooked spaetzles to a colander to drain. Run under cold water to cool.
