Another Cooking Lesson

I couldn't let my German house guests get away without cooking us some Spätzle in addition to the delicious Klöße and Geschnetzeltes meal we made together, so Kathrin, my cousin's wife, led the kids (hers and mine) in another Spätzle lesson.  Every German cook has her own little tips on this simple German delicacy, and I didn't want to miss out on hers.

We got the boys to mix the dough.

 Everyone wanted a turn at the fun job of scraping the dough into boiling water.

Be sure to remove the dough after just a minute or two from the boiling water.

 So what is Kathrin's Spätzle secret?  Grilled onions.

We alternated layers of Edam cheese and Spätzle noodles in a casserole dish and baked until melted through.

Serve the Spätzle with grilled onions on top and the result is fabulous.


  1. So will your kids be making Spätzle on a regular basis?

    1. Wouldn't that be nice? We'll see! I might have to get the action going and if I'm lucky they'll pitch in.
