Cheddar and Onion Spaetzle
Theas recipe is dropped from a spoon into the boiling water and is more like a dumpling!
This way to prepare the spatzle is delicious using either recipe. I most often use Thea's since it is soooo much easier and yummy to boot!

This is sooo yummy! I NEVER have leftovers!
