4 eggs
½ cup milk
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
½ tsp nutmeg, ground
¼ tsp white pepper
¼ cup butter
1 cup onion, sliced thin
1 cup Bergkase cheese, grated - or other hard German cheese
Salt and pepper to taste

Combine the eggs and milk, mix well.

Add the flour, salt, nutmeg and pepper; combine to form a sticky dough.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.

Form the Spaetzle by using a special Spaetzle maker or use a rubber spatula to push the batter through the holes of a large-holed colander.

Cook the Spaetzle in boiling water for approximately 5 minutes, or until the noodles rise to the surface.

Drain well.

Heat a heavy bottom sauté pan over medium high heat, melt the butter and add the onions.

Cook the onions until lightly browned.

Add the drained Spaetzle and sauté about 2 minutes.

Add the grated Bergkase cheese, toss well to coat.

Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
