Spätzle Dough
2 c. flour
7 eggs
¼ c. milk
Combine everything in mixing bowl and mix well. Let sit refrigerated for 1 hour or overnight. When ready to cook, get a double perforated pan on the stove. Easiest way to do this is use a 400 for the bottom pan and fill ½ way with water and place a perforated 200 pan on top. Wait for water to start to simmer and push the dough through the perforated pan. Once the noodles start to float, strain out and shock in an ice bath.

1 T. Lemon Parsley Gremolata
2 oz. Jowl Bacon Onion Jam
½ c. white wine (preferably chardonnay)
1 ½ T. butter
Salt and pepper- to taste
