  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups of water
  • 4 cups all purpose flour
  • 8 oz each of Gruyere Emmental and Fontina cheeses (feel free to make substitutes), grated
  • 2 medium onions sliced thinly


  • Put a large pot of salted water on the stove to boil
  • Sift together the flour and salt
  • In another bowl, beat the eggs and 1 cup of water
  • Add the eggs to the flour mixing well to form a soft dough, add water as necessary so that the dough will go through the holes of the colander or spaetzel maker. You will need to use a spatula to get the dough through a colander if that is what you are using.
  • Continue dropping the dough into the boiling water as they rise to the top remove them with a slotted spoon until all the dough is cooked.
  • Place the cooked dough in a casserole dish and mix together with the grated cheese.
  • Put in a 375 degree oven for about 30 minutes until the cheese is nice and bubbly.
  • While it is in the oven , caramelize the onions on low heat until nice and brown.
  • Add the onions to the top of the Kasknofle and serve hot with applesauce
