6 slices bacon, chopped into 1/4-cm pieces
200g plain flour
1 tsp salt, plus more for seasoning
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper, plus more for seasoning
1/4 tsp grated nutmeg
1/2 tsp cayenne
1/4 tsp baking powder
2 eggs, beaten
55ml milk
50g chopped parsley leaves, for garnish

1) In a large saute pan, over medium heat, cook bacon until crispy. Reserve bacon in pan with rendered fat.

2) In a large bowl, mix flour, salt, pepper, nutmeg, cayenne and baking powder to combine. Beat eggs and milk together in a small bowl and stir into dry mixture until smooth and uniform.

3) Bring 1.5L salted water to a boil in a large pot. Poke holes using a pointed chopstick through the bottom of the aluminum pie pan to create a disposable spaetzle maker. Push the dough through the holes into the boiling water. Stir and cook for 3 minutes, or until dumplings float. Remove dumplings and immediately toss in pan with bacon. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper and garnish with parsley. Serve immediately.
