READY IN: 50mins


  • 17 58
    ounces spaetzle noodles (before cooking)
  • 3
    tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 7
    tablespoons butter
  • 1
    large onion, sliced very fine

    ounces smoked bacon, diced very fine

  • 1
    bunch chives, sliced fine
  • 1
    bunch parsley, chopped
  • 14
    ounces emmenthaler cheese, grated
  • salt & pepper


  • Cook Spaetzle in a large pot of boiling salt water for 13 minutes until tender and strain, add into a large bowl.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • 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.
  • Add in chives, parsley and seasoning to taste. Be careful with the salt because the bacon is already salty!
  • Mix well together and add half the cheese.
  • Butter the sides of an oven baking dish, add the mixture and cover it with the remaining cheese.
  • Bake for 15 minutes and broil for 3 minutes until the "bake" is golden brown.
