A general favourite, Schinkenfleckerl is also easy to prepare. Choose a wine to complement the creamy cheese and ham flavours of the sauce.

The "Fleckerl" are diced slices of pasta, and very typical for Austria. A vegetarian alternative is the "Krautfleckerl", with cabbage used in place of the ham. This dish is perfect for parties and buffets, as you can make as many portions as you like. There are many ways to make it, but a particularly fine method is described below:


Quantities for 4 people

  • 300g diced pasta
  • 180g sour cream
  • 180g single cream
  • 20g butter
  • 100g smoked ham, sliced
  • 100g mushrooms
  • 30g Spring onions sliced into fine rings
  • Salt, white pepper
  • Thyme
  • Grated mature mountain cheese


Boil the diced pasta in a large saucepan of salted water until al dente. Slice the mushrooms pan-fry them in a frying pan with a knob of butter. Then fry the spring onions in butter in a large frying pan or casserole dish, and add the sliced ham. Heat briefly, then add the pasta and stir in the cream and sour cream; add the mushrooms. Season with salt, pepper and thyme, and cook until the residue moisture achieves the desired consistency. Grate the mature cheese and spread it evenly across the surface of the dish before placing under the grill until the cheese melts. Serve with a lettuce or lamb’s lettuce salad.
