Heavenly! I made my own spatzle recipe. I followed the ingredients almost exactly. But, I did it all in the the skillet, I melted the butter and 1T.oil, added the onions and spatzle together and browned them at the same time. When they were done I added salt, pepper then shedded gruyere. Thanks for the wonderful blend of flavors!!!

I cooked this and served it with Authentic Viennese Goulash (Wiener Fiakergulasch). Man what a winning combination. This was just delicious, but I had a hard time with the technique. My son was saying he thought there was a tool that I could buy to make this. As the dough was a bit tough to get to go through the colander holes. I eventually started using a spoon with holes in it, but it took a long time. I did love it though and so did my husband who is wondering "when" I will do this again.

Yummy! OMGravy the onions on top ROCK! How delish! This was an awesome side that seemed like a good deal of work yet was not. It came together quickly with the majority of time being actual cooking. Dh is 100% German and loves this type of food. He raved over this and even took some left over to work for lunch! High praise from him if he touches a left over! :) Thank you for yet another amazing dish! Made for ZWT4

Talk about gilding the lily; gruyere and carmelized onions on heavenly spaetzle. I had my doubts about all that milk but the waiting period takes care of any concerns. Incredible recipe, NcMysteryShopper. Thanks for sharing it with the rest of us.

My mother was from Alsace and made spƤtzle all the time, but I don't think she ever baked it with cheese. I added cubed ham and peas to make it into a meal and nearly went into a comfort food coma. :)

oh, wow! This was just absolutely wonderful! I will admit to cheating and using premade spaetzle as a time-saver, but it still is great. Just interesting enough for people to say, "Ooh, what IS this?"

I have not made this, but have eaten it many times prepared by my friend who is German. It is a wonderful blend of flavors and textures. The gruyere cheese is a must, swiss will give this dish a different taste. RICH and satisfying is a great way to describe this gem of a dish. It is wonderful on it's own or served along side a schitzel.
