Description

You don’t need a special tool to make spaetzle, the little irregularly shaped Austrian noodles, though you can find one at many houseware stores; otherwise you can use a colander or a sieve. Either way, spaetzle are simple to prepare and utterly delicious--especially when boiled and then finished by cooking in a rich and creamy cheese sauce and topped with fried onions, as in this recipe.

Ingredients

  • 450 grams flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 70 milliliters water (approximately, depending on how much is absorbed by the flour)
  • salt
  • sauce
  • butter (Malga, or butter)
  • savory
  • cheese
  • 1 white onion (large)

Directions

  1. 1To prepare the spaetzle:
  2. 2Place the flour in a bowl, make a well in the center and add the eggs, a pinch of salt, and the water.
  3. 3Stir the ingredients together until the mixture is smooth and uniform in consistency, it should fall from the wooden spoon in large drops.
  4. 4Bring a stockpot full of water to a boil, use the spaetzle tool directly over the stockpot of boiling water and allow the batter to fall into the pot.
  5. 5Remove the spaetzle with a slotted spoon as they come to the surface.

  7. 7To prepare the sauce:
  8. 8Melt the butter in a saucepan, add the cheese cut into cubes and a few tablespoons of milk, and cook until the cheese melts into a smooth creamy mixture.
  9. 9In the meantime, slice the onion into thin rounds, fry the slices in boiling oil.
  10. 10Drain the onions and season them with salt.
  11. 11Saute the spaetzle in a large pan with the cheese sauce for a few minutes.
  12. 12Serve hot with the fried onions sprinkled on top.
