So my recipe for Spaetzle comes from ‘My Best German Recipes‘, but don’t worry it is from the Tyrol region in Austria. I wasn’t quite sure what spaetzle were, but all of the recipes involved cheese and bacon so I thought they were worth trying.

Spaetzle is a soft egg noodle. Simply mix flour with egg and water, boil the noodles, cool them and add them to your onion, bacon and cheese mixture. What’s not to like? This is Austrian fast food for when you come back off the mountains.

Schnapps anyone?

 

 

Steps

1
Done

Place the flour in a bowl and make a hole in the middle, add the eggs, 3 tbsp water and salt into the hole.

2
Done

With a wooden spoon mix everything starting from the middle. If the dough is too firm add some water.

3
Done

Beat the dough with the wooden spoon until you can see big bubbles. The dough is ready when it is falling from the spoon without breaking up into parts.

4
Done

Bring enough water to a boil (add some salt), then by using a spaetzle maker make the spaetzle. If you do not have a spaetzle maker (who does?) stretch the dough out over a board and cut into fine noodles, then drop into the boiling water. They are done when they float on the surface of the water. Take them out and place them in ice cold water for a second, then let them drain in a sieve.

5
Done

Chop onions in fine slices; melt butter in a skillet and saute onions on low heat for about 20 min until to a golden brown color.

6
Done

Cut the bacon in small strips, add to the onions and saute for 3 min. Add the spaetzle, saute for 2 min, before serving add cheese and chopped parsley. Cheese will melt when you mix the spaetzle, you can grill it for 2-4 minutes to finish it off. Serve with a mixed salad.
