Stopping for lunch on the on-mountain eatery last Saturday I had resolved to opt for something else from the menu. In conclusion, I ended up with my favorite comfort food, my ski-day temptation par excellence: Kaspressknödel (Cheese dumplings).

In fact, they are not real dumplings: they don’t have the form of a ball and they are not cooked in hot water, but fried in a pan. And so they have the form of patties. The hardest part is deciding whether I want them served in a hearty broth or with salad. This time I opted for the warming soup. Next time I will go for salad, probably. Or for a completely different dish... Here is my recipe for cooking delicious, pan fried cheese dumplings at home. Trust me, they are to die for! In the video below we will walk you through every step of how to make this filling, classic mountain meal. Enjoy!
