Step by Step Instructions

Arrow

Step 1

Make spaetzle noodles from-scratch (it's easy) following my authentic recipe.  Finely dice your onions into thin and small pieces. Grate the cheese.

Step 2

Caramelize the onions — they should be going as you do everything else as this can take 45 minutes to do properly. There aren't any good short cuts.

Step 3

When the spaetzle is ready, toss it into the casserole dish. Add the grated cheese on top. Add the caramelized onions on top of the cheese when they are ready. –
