This recipe makes tiny cheese dumplings called spaetzle in German. It's kind of a German version of macaroni and cheese.


Serves: 8 

  • 1 1/2 cups (185g) plain flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/8 cup (90ml) skim milk
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups grated Swiss cheese

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. Sift together flour, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Beat eggs in a medium bowl. Alternately mix in milk and the flour mixture until smooth. Let stand for 30 minutes.
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Press batter through a spaetzle press into the water. You may also use a potato ricer, colander or a cheese grater. When the spaetzle has floated to the top of the water, remove it to a bowl with a slotted spoon. Mix in 1 cup of the cheese.
  3. Melt butter in a large frypan over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook until golden. Stir in spaetzle and remaining cheese until well blended. Remove from heat, and serve immediately.
