“Something I came up with when i had the munchies, very easy since everything is already cooked when you layer it in the pan. You'll probably need to double the recipe if you plan on making it for more than two people. I used a 4x6 glass pan that's about 2 inches deep. Some of the measurements (like the cheese, I probably used a bit more) are educated guesses. I steamed the potato in a microwaveable bag speciffically designed for that, I'm pretty sure I'm not allowed to say the brand (let's just say "don't get mad, get *blank*"). You can do it the old-fashioned way if you want.”
3-4 cups per serving

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 12 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 medium potato (peeled and sliced into discs, then steamed)
  • 1 cup spaetzle noodles (boiled in 2 cups water till soft)
  • 12 cup sour cream
  • 1 dash salt and pepper


  1. First, sprinkle a small handful of the cheese in the bottom of your pan, just enough to cover it. (I don't reccomend greasing the pan) That's your first layer.
  2. Then layer in the (boiled and drained) spaetzle, cover with cheese.
  3. cover that layer with the steamed potatoes, spread the sour cream over that and cover with the last of the cheese.
  4. place in the middle rack of a 350 degree oven for 20-25 mins, or until the cheese on top is completely melted.
  5. sprinkle on the salt and pepper (if desired) and serve.
