What are the quintessential German dishes that everyone needs to try at least once? I'd love a good spaetzle (spelling?)recipe!

There are so many different types of Spaetzle Lori.

From Natural Spaetzle to Cheese Spaetzle, Roasted Onion Spaetzle, Herb Spaetzle and even Spinach Spaetzle.

And then there are a mass of different dishes to which they are added, so you get Apple Spaetzle, Mushroom Spaetzle, Ro-Ro-Spaetzle (Red Wine and Rosemary) spaetzle etc.

Have already written an article on them for next week anyway, Autumn is just around the corner and that is when the kitchens get busy with Spaetzle making, so let me know what type of flavour, or not, you are looking for and I will post it for you.

I had no idea there were so many types of spaetzle! They all sound delicious! But what is the basic ingredient? Is it flour based? Potato?

I'm interested in the basic spaetzle, its history and also then some variations like the mushroom spaetzle! Thanks! My mouth is watering now! smile

The base is flour, eggs, water and salt Lori.

Tell you what I will put the article up tomorrow instead of next week, it is all a bit too long to post on the forum and am on the hunt for a suitable photo at the moment.

Then you can see how it is made etc., not difficult at all and the mushroom dish is already there.

One of my favourites, can finish a plate at a sitting..........yummy! blush

It sounds a lot like a noodle. Thanks for the article in advance. And what time is it in Germany? You're up late. Or early?

yawn. Going to bed now! I'll check in tomorrow! smile

Yes the basic mixture is similar Lori, it is the way it is made that turns spaetzle into something else.

It is just after 8 am, have worked through the night and somehow have just got my 'second wind'. If you have that phrase over there.

Well, it's just about midnight here. I wanted to wake up at 6 am, but I need more than six hours of sleep to feel good.

We have that phrase "second wind" but you'll blow out your sails if you don't get some rest! How come you worked through the night, Francine?

Hi Lori, Your Spaetzle articles are up. Had to split it into two because it went on for������..ever.

There was even enough for a third, the Spaetzle salad is just delicious but there was no room, was already receiving those �your article is too long� automated messages. Next time.

Would love to hear if you try any of them, and what you thought.

And yes to answer your question am working through the night quite a bit at the moment. You are right not really a sensible idea but missed a couple of weeks because of summer flu, yes I know absolutely nobody gets summer flu, I did not even know it existed, so have to catch up with the schedule. And of course you know how that is, sleep disappears out of the window because lists of unfinished tasks keep appearing instead of 'sheep' and dreams, so might as well work on them.

As a child were you also told to 'count sheep', if you couldn't sleep, or is that a European thing?

If there anyone else out there who would like to have a recipe for a German dish they have either heard about, or perhaps even tried when on holiday or serving in Germany, would love to know.

Will try to find the best recommended recipe if I have not one myself, and I have masses of family favourites given to me by my late mother-in-law, so you can try whatever dish it was once again, but this time at home.

Francine, we used to make what we called Bayrischer Stuttgarter rote kraut. The recipe is about 150 years old or older. We would fry about 1/2 lb. of speck(bacon) until crisp. Remove the bacon and put some of the grease into a skillet. Slice a head of rot kraut not including the core into thin slices into the hot bacon grease. Add a generous handful or raisins. Cook on medium low heat stirring regularly so as not to stick. The kraut can be cooked in water instead of grease and the water can be used for a dye. Now, we used to say that we cooked "ungefehr"???? I don't remember the spelling but it meant without measuring. Then we added one apfel cored, peeled and sliced. Cook all together until all is just starting to get soft. Then add the fried bacon cut into small pieces, apple cider vinegar, honey, brown sugar, salt and pepper. Cook until soft stirring regularly. Bad for the cholesterol but taste to die for!!! Francine, I need to ask you a question. How did such a German girl get such an Irish last name? dave
