This is a dish my father made from the old country. It was a favorite meal for a family of nine. We termed it German mac and cheese!
- Portion size 10 servings
- Credits : frommelt
- 5 cups flour
- 5 eggs
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 1 tablespoon parsley or favourite herb
- 1 cup Canadian Cheddar Cheese or other
- 6 slices bacon
- 1 cup chopped green onion
MethodSaute bacon until crisp and dice to bite size pieces. Shred cheese and dice green onion. Set all aside while making the egg dough. Bring a large salted pot of water to boil. Combine flour, salt, herbs and eggs in a large mixing bowl. Add enough water to make a soft egg dough that will "drip". Using a "spatlze" maker from your local kitchen shop or a colander fill the basket or colondar with 1-2 cups of dough that will drip into the boiling salted water using a wooden spoon if necessary to cut the dough into small "buttons" into the water.
Keep water at a gentle simmer until dough buttons float to the top and are cooked. Drain each batch well and layer into a large roaster layering each batch with your bacon, onions and cheese. Repeat until all ingedients are used. Bake in a 350 degree oven until cheese is melted through approx 15 minutes. Enjoy as a main dish or divide recipe for a side dish.
