Oktoberfest Spaetzle

Oktoberfest began when Prince Ludwig of Bavaria married Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen on October 12, 1810 and invited all of Munich to attend.  The celebration continued year after year and is now one of the most popular and widely celebrated events in the world!  The 16 day event usually begins mid to late September and ends the first week of October.

In honor of this event, here is a recipe for Spaetzel - tiny little dumplings.  Served with a good bratwurst (I purchased mine from a local sausage maker who makes all of his sausage gluten free - be sure to check.  Many sausages use a wheat product to bind the ingredients).  Add a gluten free beer (my favorite is Omission IPA) and maybe some saurkraut - your Oktoberfest dinner is ready!

Here's how you make it -

So, here’s how you make them:
