If you have a dumpling or spatzle maker, this will be ready in record time. Make the dumplings, layer it with grated cheese, and stick it in the oven until the cheese melts. Meanwhile prepare the topping and you are ready. I would be hard-pressed if I had to pick between sajtos and tojásos nokedli. Both are fabulous! There are several variations, make it with only cheese and serve it with sour cream. Or scatter bacon bits or fried purple onions on the top or both. Either way this is one delicious meal. Serve it with a green salad.

1 batch of egg dumplings
1/2 cup hard white cheese, grated [I use white cheddar
1/2 cup shaved parmesan cheese
1/2 cup diced bacon
1 cup very thinly sliced purple onion

• Make the egg dumplings.
• Meanwhile set the oven to 375F.
• Rinse and drain the dumplings thoroughly.
• Butter a 9X12 inch casserole dish.
• Place half the dumplings in the dish.
• Scatter the hard cheese on top.
• Place the remaining dumplings on top.
• Scatter with parmesan cheese and place in the preheated oven.
• Meanwhile partially fry the diced bacon on medium heat.
• Add the sliced purple onions and fry, continually stirring until translucent.
• Remove dumplings from the oven as soon as the cheese melts.
• Add the toppings and serve.


  1. Zsuzsa, don't tempt me! I have skipped my breakfast today, so I have to wait patiently for the lunch hour, but I just want to grab this plate and finish it!

  2. Zsuzsa, I have a smile on my face...another reminder of my favorites. I also used to make it with scrambling the eggs over the dumplings, and with the cheese, of course. Love the caramelized onions on the top...oh, my stomach is growling now! If my hand didn't hurt I would be out there in the kitchen whipping this up...have all the ingredients. Well, next time!
    Thanks for sharing, my dear!

  3. Szia Elisabeth! Tojasos nokedli -oooh I like that too. With butter lettuce in sugar+vinegar brine... yum! I hope you are keeping well and your hand is OK now. :)

  4. Sissi how are you? It has been awhile, how did it turn out?

  5. Hi, Zsuzsa! I'm so happy to see you back! I'm ok although the horrible cold April was exhausting... I haven't tried making nokedli, but I certainly will one day!

  6. I cannot make nokedli without a spatzle maker worth beans. There ase people who can make them with a small cutting board and a knife. I have seen it, but I just can't do it.
