From the Test Kitchen

Spaetzle is a classic side in German and Austrian cuisines. In this dish, though, it gets the spotlight. Its name translates to “little sparrows”—what the bite-sized, oddly crimped egg noodles were said to resemble, when made by hand. We’re dressing our spaetzle simply with browned butter. And we’re adding plenty of zestiness with chives, red onion and fresh horseradish, complemented by the tart-sweet touch of Granny Smith apple.
