Last year on our holiday which we spent in Alps, we decided to climb the Aggenstein which is the mountain on the German-Austrain border. Like almost every mountain over 2000m the hike was tiring and long. On the last station before climbing the mountain top we decided to take a break and have a coke in the mountain hostel (I am only allowed to drink coke while hiking in the mountains!).
The mountin hostel was on the Austrain side so we could find Austrain dishes on the menu. Although we spent here holiday every summer I havent got a chance to try many Austrian dishes. So here was my chance! We have ordered Speckknödel and Spinatknödel. Can you imagine that the vegetairian version is as good as the meat one! What a surprise!
Austrain made Knödel each time when they didnt know what to put on the table. Knödel need only few ingredients and are nt difficult to make. With a little bit of butter and cheese this dish can be a highlight!
I would certainly recommend trying them while your holiday in Tirol or just cooking them on your own in case you dont have any idea what to put today on the table;)
