preparation time: 25 minutes
cooking time: 5 minutes
difficulty: easy

for 4 persons

  • 340 g plain flour (type 00) or spelt flour
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 4 eggs
  • nutmeg, ground 
  • salt
  • 120 ml water
  • 70 g butter
  • 150 g "Alta Badia" cheese, grated
  • 80 g walnuts
  • 150 g bacon, strips


Place the flour, olive oil, eggs, grated nutmeg and a pinch of salt in a bowl.

Add half of the water and mix with a wooden spoon. Gradually add the remaining water until you have a thick dough that slowly comes off the spoon. If it does not, use a little water or flour for help.

Cover the dough and let it rest at room temperature for 15 minutes.

Bring a pot of water to the boil and add salt.

Pass the Spaetzle through a spaetzle maker, cook for a few minutes, strain and toss them with butter in a pan.

Put some of the Spaetzle in a casserole dish, sprinkle with cheese, walnuts and bacon. Continue layering the ingredients on top of each other until all of them are used up.

Bake in the oven at 200°C (180°C convection oven) for 10 minutes, remove from oven and serve.
