A few weeks ago, at a loss for what to eat at a local restaurant (I didn’t feel like the over seasoned, greasy sausages), I tried the Kässpätzle (cheesy Spätzle topped with a generous serving of fried caramelised onions) and was hooked on this comfort food.
What is Spätzle you ask? This is Spätzle.
I agree, it looks a little scary. Kinda like a ton load of little white worms trying to wriggle their way out of the frying pan!
Spätzle is basically like weird textured pasta, made from flour and eggs and is served instead of potatoes with meat or just on its own as a main dish.
Ready-made Spätzle can be found in the fresh pasta section of supermarkets, or you can just make it yourself. I cheated and bought mine ready-made from the supermarket.
Recipe for calorie-packed very-moreish plain Spätzle with onions
1 packet fresh Spätzle
Dice onion and fry in a pan. Add Spätzle and fry till cooked.
Looks completely bizarre but let me assure you, it’s very yummy comfort (and very anti-diet) food!
If you’re a addicted to chilli like I am, eat your Spätzle with sweet chilli sauce. That’s how I eat my Spätzle!
