- 5 c flour
- 4 eggs
- 2 tsp salt, divided
- 2 1/2 c water
- 1 tsp vegetable oil
- 16 oz shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1 medium onion
Whisk flour, eggs, 1 tsp salt, and water together until batter slides slowly from spoon. Let sit an hour or so and mix again. (Spätzle maker should be in freezer while batter rests.)
Fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil; add about 1 tsp salt and some oil. Let spätzle boil for a few minutes and taste for doneness.
Layer spätzle, mozzarella cheese, and browned onions in a casserole dish and repeat until full.
