Henglein Knöpfle Eierspätzle Review

Henglein Knöpfle Eierspätzle

I told you once, I am a sucker for products that save me time, and taste as good, or nearly as good as home-made. Now that we established report, let me introduce you to my first review: Henglein Knöpfle Eierspätzle. They cost about $4.39 at Germandeli.com – way cheaper in stores in Germany. This is, however, not the point.

The product claims to have 10 eggs from backyard chickens pro kilogram of flour. A 400g pack serves 2-3 portions, 6 if you pair with veg and meat, and a nice home-made sauce. Excellent value for money, if you ask me.

The product is fresh and usually has an expiry term of maximum 14 days. Another important claim, as you can see on the package, is that it tastes like a home-made meal. Well… it certainly does. If you are not very adventurous in your recipes, and your name is Grodon Ramsay, you cannot really make the difference between fresh Henglein Knöpfle Eierspätzle and some home-made version from Swabia.

I use Eierspätzle as an alternative for pasta in many recipes, and when the product is as fresh and tasty as Henglein Knöpfle Eierspätzle, well… I can only recommend it.There are three ways to prepare the product: fry in a pan with a little butter, until golden brown; bring water to boil, add the Henglein Knöpfle Eierspätzle, and let boil for 1 minute; or put the product in a microwave-resistant bowl and let cook in the microwave oven for 3-4 minutes, at 600 Watt, with a bit of water. I never use a microwave, and I don’t believe in boiling Eierspätzle, but feel free to try any option.
