Cheese casserole 150 Image by: Cheese casserole 150 Author: Canadian Living

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!

Saute 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.
