This Tyrolean speciality can be served in a variety of ways. Let me tell you my recipe for “Kaspressknödel” cheese dumplings in broth.
While enjoying a holiday dedicated to wellness in Mayrhofen at our Hotel Neue Post, you’ll also discover that our area is home to a whole host of delicious traditional recipes. One of my favourites has to be Tyrolean Kaspressknödel – a kind of fried cheese dumpling. I love to cook this speciality when I fancy something satisfying that doesn’t take too long to prepare. So, how do you make Kaspressknödel? Well, you’ll need the following ingredients:
- 500g potatoes
- 150g Graukäse cheese (or another strong cheese)
- 50g flour
- Half an onion
- A little butter for frying
Once I’ve got all my ingredients together, I first boil the potatoes. While they’re cooking, I lightly fry the onions. Then, I peel the boiled potatoes, mash them, and mix in the fried onions. I add the cheese to the mix and then season with salt, pepper, and a pinch of nutmeg. Finally, I shape the mixture into little patties and fry them in butter on a hot heat. The fried Kaspressknödel taste great in vegetable or beef broth – whichever you prefer! Why not try it for yourself and recreate this taste of Zillertal at home?
