DIRECTIONS

  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
  • Saute onions in butter and set aside.
  • Combine the salt and flour in a large bowl or mixer.
  • Mix in the eggs.
  • Slowly mix in the water a little at a time and mix until you have a sticky, bubbly dough.
  • There are two methods for making the Spaetzle but in both cases, they should be prepared in batches: 1) on a small board, spread some of the dough flat and over the boiling water, use a chef's knife to cut thin strips or ribbons and push them into the water. 2) using a potato ricer or spaetzle press, take a portion of dough and extrude the spaetzle into the boiling water.
  • With either method, when the spaetzle float to the top, they are done, skim them off, rinse them in cold water and brown for a minute or two in a skillet with some of the sauteed onions.
  • In a casserole dish, layer the spaetzle, onion, and cheese as you prepare them.
  • Bake at 200-250 until cheese is melted (5-10 minutes).
