Perhaps the recipe was invented in Austria, but the Spätzle translate as 'swabian dumplings' wherever they come from. The question is quite similar to the arguments between the French and Italians over who actually invented the pizza.
Hmm... Graukas? I have never seen this kind, but have to admit I never looked for it smiley - smiley

These people, famous for their niggardliness, recycled the dough that was left over when the Italians hollowed out the noodle-cylinders to produce maccaroni.smiley - silly
