Germans and their food

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

here are the 2 recipes i posted in the other thread, but we were getting quite rather off-topic, so i thought, hey, i should be considerate. post yours, or modifications, or just how much you love it.

Celery Seed Dressing
1 cup Sugar
1 1/2 tsp. Salt
1 1/2 tsp. Paprika
1 1/2 tsp. Instant Onion
1/2 cup Ketchup
1/2 cup Vinegar
1 1/2 tsp. Celery Seed
1 1/2 cup Water
Blend all of the above in blender then reduce speed and add 1 1/2 cup Salad Oil.

and here's the family version (i guess probably the most basic) of speatzel.
1 1/2 cups Flour
1 tsp. Salt
1 Egg
Put egg in center of flour and salt mixture and mix well. Then begin adding small amounts of water until the dough gathers all together. Knead dough on counter until it is a smooth dough ball. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil then begin breaking small bits of dough into the boiling water. Continue until all the dough is broken into the boiling water and cook until tender. Drain and put a little bit of butter on and mix through.
