    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 17 5/8 ounces spaetzle noodles (before cooking)
    • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 7 tablespoons butter
    • 1 large onion, sliced very fine
    • 8 ounces smoked bacon, diced very fine
    • 12 1/3 ounces black forest ham, sliced very fine
    • 1 bunch chives, sliced fine
    • 1 bunch parsley, chopped
    • 14 ounces emmenthaler cheese, grated
    • salt & pepper


    1. 1
      Cook Spaetzle in a large pot of boiling salt water for 13 minutes until tender and strain, add into a large bowl.
    2. 2
      Preheat oven to 350°F.
    3. 3
      Add the oil and butter to a large frying pan over medium high heat. Add in sliced onions and sauté until golden brown, add in bacon and ham and continue to cook for 5 minutes. Mix together the onions, bacon and ham into a large bowl with noodles.
    4. 4
      Add in chives, parsley and seasoning to taste. Be careful with the salt because the bacon is already salty!
    5. 5
      Mix well together and add half the cheese.
    6. 6
      Butter the sides of an oven baking dish, add the mixture and cover it with the remaining cheese.
    7. 7
      Bake for 15 minutes and broil for 3 minutes until the "bake" is golden brown.

      This was very good. I especially loved the noodles with the bacon, ham and herbs. Just a delicious combination! The only thing I didn't care for was the cheese. I think using less cheese would be better and perhaps using a mild-flavored white cheese. I thought the emmenthaler cheese taste was a bit too dominant. This could very well just be my personal taste. I will try it again with the cheese changes. Again, I LOVED the bacon, ham, herb and spaetzle combo...yum!! Danke. ~Made for ZWT 6 Zee Zany Zesty Cookz~

      WOW is this good. And WOW is this bad for you. . .but worth every calorie!!! I used much less bacon (about 8 thin slices) and much less ham (about 1 cup) and much less cheese (8 oz to be exact). I added 8 oz of sliced fresh button mushrooms and wish I would have added even more. Used seasoning salt instead of regular salt; again, a good choice. Great comfort food and super easy too. Made for ZWT6 for my SSaSSy teammate!
