Spaetzle & Cheese

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup Swiss cheese
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine bread crumbs and butter; spread out onto a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes or until lightly browned. When bread crumbs are done, increase oven to 400 degrees. In a small bowl, combine flour and salt. Whisk in eggs and milk until smooth. Fill a large stockpot 3/4 full with water; bring to a boil. With a rubber spatula, press dough through a colander into boiling water, or use a spaetzle maker. Cook and stir gently for 4-5 minutes or until spaetzle float and are tender. Transfer spaetzle to a greased casserole dish. Mix in bread crumbs and cheeses; bake for 25-30 minutes. Salt & pepper to taste.
