    Nif's Note:

    A large portion of Switzerland is highly influenced by German cuisine. Here is a combination of the two! I do recommend that you purchase a spaetzle maker, but you can use a colander or the method listed here. Enjoy!

    1. 1
      Fill a large pot of salted water to a boil.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, heat up a nonstick frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and bacon. Cook until the onion is slightly golden.
    3. 3
      For the pasta, mix together eggs, flour, milk and nutmeg. The dough will be quite runny.
    4. 4
      Put the pasta dough onto a wooden board, now scrape with a knife little dumplings about the size of a couple of peas and let each dumpling fall into the boiling water. You can also use what is called a Spätzle machine which is like a giant garlic press or push it through a colander.
    5. 5
      Once the dumplings float on the water, take them out as they are done.
    6. 6
      Add the Spätzle dumplings and the cheese to the frying pan and fry for a couple of minutes.
    7. 7
      Season with salt and pepper and sprinkle some parsley on top.

      This spaetzle dish took me right back to my childhood in the Austrian Alps, I think I heard cow bells ringing...Seriously, the flavors of onions, bacon and cheese meld together with the pasta and make a wonderful, comforting dish. Thanks, Nif, for posting!

      Excellent flavors! I make this all the time...I guess I should say I make the basic recipe all the time...without the onion, bacon and yummy swiss cheese. DH (he's German) loved it....this was a perfect side to Nif's Oktoberfest Beef Rouladen Thanks for posting. Made for Fall PAC 2011
