Each fall, we gather with friends at a local German restaurant to celebrate Oktoberfest. One of my favorite things to eat is the Cheese Spaetzle or Käsespätzle. I recently discovered that Aldi sells Spaetzle (German Egg Noodle), so I made it for an Oktoberfest potluck for all the German students and their families at my son’s high school.
The bag of Spaetzle has the directions for Käsespätzle on it. Simple ingredients are: Spaetzle, Swiss cheese, butter, onion.
You boil the spaetzle, drain, and then layer it in a casserole dish with swiss cheese and butter. You bake at 375 degrees for 5 minutes or until brown. Then top with browned onion.
Our onion looked like bacon! Maybe that is why our dish got eaten up so quickly.
It went along with the other food nicely! There were activities too. The kids did the Maibaum.
My son held the poster for Schnitzelbank.
The evening was a lot of fun. We are looking forward to next year!
I apologize in advance if my ‘German’ is wrong.
