Ingredients for 4 servings:
- 500 grams Swabian “Spätzle” noodles (for cooking)
- 1 liter water
- 200 milliliters cream
- 200 grams of grated cheese (e.g. mountain cheese, Emmentaler or Gouda)
- 2 – 3 onions
- 25 grams freid onions
- Salt & pepper
- Butter & oil for frying
- Fresh chives for garnish
Required kitchen gadgets, helper & preparations:
- Large pan or pot with lid
Peel off onions and roughly chop. Cut the chives into fine rolls & set aside until serving. Heat up a large pan or saucepan with a generous piece of butter & a dash of oil & brown the onions in it for 4 – 5 minutes, turning them occasionally.
Next, add the spaetzle noodles, 1 liter of water, 200 milliliters of cream, 25 grams fried onions & 2 teaspoons of salt to the pan, then bring everything to a boil & simmer very slowly over low heat with the lid closed for 12 – 15 minutes.
Stir the spaetzle pan from time to time so that nothing can burn on the bottom of the pot & continue simmering until the noodles are cooked & have absorbed the liquid almost completely.
Finally, season everything with salt & pepper to taste, remove the pan from the stove, add 200 grams of grated cheese & allow the cheese to melt in the pan until it pulls strings by forking in & then dish up the cheesy spaetzle pan garnished with fresh chives. Have fun cooking!
