Cheese Spätzle

Category: Side dish


  1. Put a pot with water on the hob and bring to a boil over high heat.

  2. Put 60 g of butter in a pot, place it on the hob and let it melt with the special “melting” function.

  3. Put the melted butter, flour, eggs, milk, sour cream, salt and nutmeg into a mixing bowl and mix with a wooden spoon to make a smooth dough.

  4. Set a spätzle maker onto the pot with boiling water, put in the dough and press the spätzle into the water. Bring the spätzle to a boil, then take them out with a skimmer.

  5. Pre-heat oven to 200° C using upper heat.

  6. Put a pan on the hob, add 20 g of butter and melt on low heat. Add the spätzle and stir once. Put the spätzle into the casserole dish, sprinkle with cheese, put onto a rack in the oven and bake for about 5 minutes.

  7. Peel the onions, cut them in half and slice thinly. Put a pot with oil on the hob and heat on high. Caution! Keep a close eye on the pot so the oil does not overheat. When the oil is hot, add the onion strips and fry for about 1-2 minutes. Remove from the oil and allow to drip off on paper towel.

  8. Take the cheese spätzle out of the oven, arrange with the fried onions and some parsley and serve.
