Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • ¾ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • ¾ teaspoon salt

  • teaspoon pepper

  • 3 eggs

  • cup 2% milk

  • 3 tablespoons butter

  • 1 onion, sliced

  • 1 ½ cups shredded Emmentaler cheese

Directions

  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 skillet 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.
