Heat up your Oktoberfest celebrations with Sausage Bake. It's a meaty delight your guests are sure to love!

What You'll Need

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour (see Option)
  • 2 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons dried dill or mixed herbs (like dried chives, parsley, and basil)
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 medium-sized onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1 pound kielbasa or other smoked sausage, cut into 1/2-inch angled slices
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese

What to Do

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, 1 teaspoon salt, the pepper, and dill. Make a well in the center and pour in the beaten eggs and milk; mix by hand just until smooth.
  2. Fill a large pot half-full with water and add the remaining 1 teaspoon salt; bring the water to a hard, rolling boil over high heat.
  3. Over the pot, with a wide, slotted spoon, scoop out a spoonful of batter and shake lightly until it breaks into strands that fall into the water; the pieces of batter will congeal to form spaetzle. When the spaetzle float to the top, remove them with a clean slotted spoon, and drain on paper towels; repeat until no batter remains. Place spaetzle in a 9- x 13-inch baking dish and set aside.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a skillet, melt butter over medium heat; add onion, and saute 7 to 8 minutes, or until soft and golden. Add kielbasa to skillet and saute 2 to 3 minutes.
  5. Spoon kielbasa mixture over spaetzle and sprinkle with Swiss cheese. Bake 15 to 17 minutes, or until heated through and cheese is melted.


If you prefer not to make your own spaetzle, you can cook packaged dried spaetzle according to its directions, place it in a baking dish as above, and proceed with Step 4.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I make this a lot but totally in a skillet and I use cream with a smidge of chicken bouillon no cheese. I usually use frozen spaetzle. Its with the kneophla dough.

It's been so long since I've had spaetzle...but I do remember how much I enjoyed it being served with a beefy mushroom sauce that always made me think of beef stroganoff. I've never had it with cheese before, but Swiss is definitely a great way to go and when you pair it with sausage it's no doubt a good thing in my world. The spaetzle would be amazing in chicken soup too!

searched a couple different stores for spaetzle, but couldn't find any. Just tried to make this and I don't care for it. It reminds me of a soggy noodle

this has been a family favorite for years but not with the swiss cheese - I add a couple cups of saurkraut to this. a football favorite for us.

Thanks for catching that! We've now updated the recipe with the correct instructions.
