Cheese spaetzle FAQs:

Which cheese for cheese spaetzle?
Most importantly, you take really nice spicy cheese. I like to use a mixture of Emmentaler cheese and mountain cheese. If you buy your cheese at the bar, say that you make cheese spaetzle. Then you’ll get the right cheese right away.

What Spaetzle for cheese spaetzle?
With the spaetzle you have three options: You can do the spaetzle yourself, for example with a spaetzle slicer, or buy good pan-ready spaetzle from the refrigerated counter (my favorite after work). You can also get dry spaetzle in the noodle section, cook it and then process it like the pan ready.

What fits cheese spaetzle?
We like to eat a big green salad. Alternatively, I also find oven vegetables great to accommodate a little more vegetables.

Freezing spaetzle – is that possible?
Absolutely! I often make an extra large load and freeze the spaetzle in portions. When I come back home in the evening, hungry and eager for soul food, I thaw the spaetzle and make it hot, ready. That’s why the cheese noodles are also super Meal Prep-suited .
