I’m back with the cooking! For the fourth year in a row my friends and I threw an Oktoberfest party, an excuse to enjoy German food and drinks and celebrate fall.
My good friend Angela, one of the party co-hosts, has been a huge supporter of my couch cuisine project from the beginning. She wanted to help me cook German food when I got to Germany, so I’ve been saving that country to cook with her. A few months ago, she moved to Boston for work, and I’ve really missed her. She was back in Philly this weekend, so it was a perfect time to throw a party and cook German food with her. Here she is cooking the bacon.
We made spaetzle, which is sort of like a dumpling dish. Here are the ingredients:
Once all the dumplings are cooked and rinsed with cold water, they are sauteed until brown with butter and onion (the onion is not in this recipe, I used half an onion for a triple batch) and a little bacon fat (also an addition to the recipe).
It was a yummy snack, probably a bit heavy for a full meal in and of itself. Best enjoyed with friends!
