This speciality, typical of the region, which might even be known to a few of you as ‘Käsespätzle’, provides energy and warmth. ‘Spätzle’ dumplings are made from eggs and flour, along with onions, cubed cheese – a balanced blend of various types is recommended here, and a somewhat more intense mountain cheese from Pongau will finish off the dish nicely. Beef broth is stirred in until the cheeses melt and a crust forms on the edge of the pan. Fried onions definitely ought to feature.
This combination of hearty ingredients and traditional cooking is one example of how the simplest ingredients in Pongau cuisine can be transformed into a culinary masterpiece. Whether it is in a cosy inn, or freshly prepared in a mountain lodge after a long day on the piste, this dish is an absolute must for any visitor to Salzburger Sonnenterrasse. It embodies the authenticity and hospitality of the region and provides an irresistible flavour that you will remember for a long time to come.
