Cooking with Klaus – Bacon & Cheese Spaetzle

Ingredients (for 4 people)

4 cups fresh mushrooms sliced into
quarters and washed
3 tablespoons butter
1 cup diced ham or bacon
1.5 pounds spaetzle
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
¼ teaspoon white pepper
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
1 cup grated Gouda


Allow butter to melt in pan. Don’t let it get past warm. Add mushrooms, diced ham, and spaetzle. Heat all for 5-7 minutes, on medium heat, stirring occasionally. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg.
Add grated Gouda and chopped parsley. Divide equally into four bowls and you have a perfect comfort food dinner. If desired, you can top it with slightly browned onions.
A nice summer salad with tomatoes, cucumbers and lettuce will compliment this meal well.

See you next week!
