Älplermagrone (Herdsman's Macaroni)

40 mins (prep 15, cooking 25)
13 ingredients
4-6 servings
Basic ingredients for Swiss Alpine Macaroni include potatoes, macaroni, cheese and onions. Of course, there are several variations of this popular recipe, but no matter how it is prepared, this rustic delight, you just love it. Muscat is a sweet or fortified white wine made from a muscat grape. Mountain cheese (Allgäuer Bergkäse) is sometimes called the baby brother to Emmentaler as it is eaten younger. It is made in the mountains in alpine dairy huts. I did not include the time for the optional onion ring topping as you can do it while cooking the main dish. Enjoy!
