    This really sounds like spatezle. Which is a pasta normally put thru a sieve into boiling liquid. I can see where you'd think it looked like scrambled eggs.

    Hi!
    I think you are looking for an Austrian recipe called "Sterz" or "Mehlsterz". The ingredients are flour, salt and boiling water and lard.
    You eat it with a soup of sour cream. It really sounds not good, but it is a delicious winter meal, if you have nearly no ingredients at home and the snow is lying high.

    Best regards

    I am sorry, but my English is not good enough to translate it exactly. Perhaps the google-translator helps enough. Otherwise I can try it...

    It sounds like spatezle to me, which is like noodles. It really looks like scrambled eggs, its cooked in a broth. My ex used to make it for my daughter every time she got sick.

    No, this is not Spätzle (Spaezle). Spätzle are made with eggs and the meal is more "wet". Sterz is drier and a little bit crispy.
    It is hard to describe. This are to total other meals although they look similar, if you would make a photo of them. Oh, by the way, Schmarrn looks like these both, too. Schmarrn is like pancake, only a little bit less fluid in the raw condition and cut up in small pieces with raisins.
    I hope you are now not confused ;-)

    Sterz you eat with sour cream soup, Spätzle a little bit scalloped with cheese you take with salad and Schmarrn you eat with plum- or apple compote.
    I hope you are now not confused ;-)
