This is my favorite German dish of all time! This is a variation of macaroni and cheese but it’s definitely not your normal Kraft dinner!
Spätzle is a type of egg noodle common in southern Germany, and is commonly served as a side dish. Although they are called noodles, the length of them is more like macaroni, but with a doughier and thicker texture. It is normally served dry and the sauce of the main dish is eaten with it (for example, gravy). Käsespätzle is prepared in a pan with shredded cheese added to the noodles. Fried onion is commonly added in, and then served with a side salad. The cheese can be of various types – for example, Swiss (Emmentaler), Alpine, and Gorgonzola. It is a traditional dish and that is typically “home-made by Grandma”. Well, unfortunately I don’t have that privilege, but the restaurants don’t do too bad a job either!
