There's more to Oktoberfest than tipping a stein and turning up the oom-pah-pah. There are all the rib-sticking dishes of Bavarian cuisine. Along with sauerbraten and sausages, schnitzel remain an Oktoberfest favorite. Adapted from Black Forest Mill German Restaurant

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Follow package directions for noodles. When done, dump the spaetzle into a colander and quickly rinse with cool water.
  2. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat and add the spaetzle, tossing to coat. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes to give the noodles some color, then sprinkle with chives and season with salt and pepper.

My German heritage took me right to this recipe! Simple doughy comfort food! :) This was very good and hit the spot this afternoon. This makes 4 meal-sized portions or 8 side dish portions. I didn't rinse the noodles and just used salted butter. I will make this again! Made for ZWT6. Thanks JackieOhNo! :)
