Ingredients

  • 8 oz. bag of Spaetzle noodles

  • 8

    slices thick sliced bacon, chopped

  • 1

    medium onion, diced

  • 1

    apple cored, peeled and diced

  • 1/2

    teaspoon salt

  • 1/2

    teaspoon black pepper

  • 16 oz. pkg. smoked bratwurst, sliced

  • 8

    oz. cream cheese

  • 2

    cups German style sauerkraut

  • 8 oz. pkg. Swiss cheese, chopped

  • 4

    Tablespoons unsalted butter

  • cooking spray

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 Bring 4 quarts water to boil and add the noodles. Lightly boil for 10-12 minutes. Drain and set aside. While noodles are cooking, in skillet, fry bacon till slightly crisp. Remove from skillet leaving drippings in skillet add onion, apple, salt and pepper. Saute for 4-5 minutes. Add bratwurst and cook for an additional 5-8 minutes. Lower heat and add cream cheese and reserved bacon. Continue stirring until cream cheese is blended. Remove from heat and stir in sauerkraut, Swiss cheese and Spaetzle noodles. Spray a 9x13 baking dish/pan. Add mixture to pan and top with pats of butter. Bake covered for 15-20 minutes until cheese is bubbly. Note--We don't really care for the sauerkraut in this so instead of using the sauerkraut I use the whole 16oz. bag of Spaetzle noodles.
