Tyrolean Spinach Dumplings at the “Buzihütte”

Jump to recipe

We ate these delicious Spinach dumplings after a short climb up a mountain to the rustic Buzihütte restaurant near Innsbruck, Austria. Afterward we sat with the locals and sang

On days when I don’t know what to cook (unfortunately there are more of them than I would like), I make my Spinach dumplings. They taste great and can also be frozen very well.

Apart from the fact that the Buzihütte is a MUST for Innsbruck visitors (if only because of the rustic, romantic ambience), the menu really has something to offer for everyone. Besides the Spinach dumplings, stuffed Schnitzel (Eiterbeule) and Blueberry pancake were a dream. We had an amazing evening there.
