I have a little less than a head of red cabbage that I need to use or toss, so I want to do a braised red cabbage with apples thing that I saw somewhere.
So, I thought I would go all out and make spaetzle, too.
The problem is, I've never done it before! I found some recipes online that look fine, but they all use milk. I was hoping to toss the spaetzle with some turkey sausage (and brown it in the turkey sausage fat, yum), and don't mix meat and dairy. Can I sub water for the milk?
Also, do they make dried spaetzle that I can just buy and boil? I've seen spaetzle mix before, but never looked at the box - anyone know if it is any good?
