Bacon Caramelized Onion Spaetzle Noodles

I love Spaetzel Noodles, so tender and with the addition of bacon, and caramelized onions, just perfect together only a few ingredients and you have a delicious dish, so easy to put together in minutes you can eat this as a meal or you can go all out and have yourself an Octoberfest meal and  have with Pork Schnitzel, and sauerkraut. I will post the recipe to follow for the Schnitzel.

Well it's the time of the year for Octoberfest and what is on the menu for today's dinner, Pork Schnitzel, Spaetzle, and sauerkraut, grab yourself a nice fall beer and enjoy with dinner, you can also use chicken or veal for the Schnitzel.

  • 17 ounce package dry spaetzle noodles 
  • 1  medium sweet onion, slice thin 
  • 1 teaspoon parsley
  • 9 pieces bacon
  • 6 Tablespoons butter
  • salt and pepper
  1. In a large pot, on high heat add a little salt, when water is hot add the spaetzle noodles and boil as directed on package. Then set aside after cooking, while you are cooking the noodles start the bacon sans onion. 
  2. Over medium heat in a large skillet fry the bacon slices for about 4-5 minutes turning over after few minutes or it is crispy 
  3. Using a fork remove the bacon from the skillet keeping all of the drippings in the skillet then add 2 Tablespoons of butter and onions to the skillet and caramelize the onions on low for 10-15 minutes, keep stirring 
  4. Chop the bacon into bite size pieces and place back in skillet with the onions, stir together then add the cooked spaetzle to the skillet season with salt, pepper, parsley, and the remaining 4 Tablespoons butter, toss all together and serve hot. You can serve this as a main dish with Pork or chicken Schnitzel.
