Swiss Alpine maccaroni (Aelplermagrone) version 2

Category: Eggs/Dairy, Cheese, Swiss, Main Dish, One-Dish Meal

 Ingredients List

  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1/2 pound macaroni (long straight ones are most authentic)
  • 3/4 cups Swiss mountain cheese, grated (e.g. Appenzeller is the most authentic, but Gruyer, Emmentaler, Raclette would also work)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 onion
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, minced


Bring the milk and one tablespoon of salt to a boil.

Add the noodles, reduce the heat, and cook over a low heat until done, stirring occasionally. The noodles should absorb enough milk so that the dish is still moist (if necessary, add more milk).

Meanwhile slice the onions into thin rings. Heat up the butter and once warm, sautee the onions and garlic.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Transfer the noodles into an oven-broof bowl and mix in cheese and pepper. Top with sauteed onions and garlic.

Bake it in the oven for approximately 20 minutes until the top browns nicely.

Dried apple slices or apple sauce are traditionally served as a side dish.
