Spaetzle Casserole

as posted by annamarie in the Octber What's for Dinner? thread.

Spaetzle Casserole

for the spaetzle:
2 large eggs, beaten
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

For the meat layer:

1lb ground meat (beef, chicken, turkey, pork)
3 small onions, chopped
1/2 pound bacon, fried up and crumbled

2 cups shredded cheese (cheddar, american, swiss, grueyere)

Brown the ground meat, add onions to the pan and sautee till onions are transleucent. Add the crumbled bacon and mix into the meat and onion mixture. (add pepper and garlic powder if you wish) Drain off any remaining grease.

combine the eggs and milk, stir in flour, salt and nutmeg, beat until smooth...the dough will be slightly thick and sticky.

spoon the mixture into a spaetzle hex (or collander) into a large pot of boiling water. For extra flavour, instead of boiling water, I used beef stock. Cook for 3 - 5 minutes. Drain.

Layer into a casserole dish, alternating meat and cheese with the spaetzle.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for approximately 20 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.
