Hey there, Aldi fans! German Week is back, and you know what that means: time to snag some unique, tasty treats. My freezer tends to fill up around this time of year!
This year, I’ve got my eye on Deutsche Küche’s Lemony Greens Knopfli or Cheese Truffle Knopfli. Priced at $5.49 and ready in just 12 minutes, this frozen gem is a must-try.
If you’re looking to switch up your dinner game, Deutsche Küche’s Knopfli is a must-try this German Week. Whether you go for the Lemony Greens or the Cheese Truffle, you’re in for a treat. Just remember, it’s only available for a limited time, so make sure to snag yours while you can.
Let’s break down what makes this dish so special.
What is Knopfli?
First things first, let’s talk about what Knopfli actually is. Originating from Switzerland, Knopfli is a type of soft egg noodle or dumpling.
It’s usually made with a mix of flour, eggs, and water, and it’s often served as a side dish or incorporated into main courses. It’s comfort food at its finest, folks.
Knopfli vs. Spaetzle: What’s the Difference?
You might be thinking, “Hey, this sounds a lot like Spaetzle.” And you’re not wrong! Both are European dumplings, but there are some key differences.
Spaetzle is German and tends to be longer and more irregular in shape, while Knopfli is Swiss and is typically round and more uniform.
The texture of Knopfli can also be a bit softer, making it a unique experience for your taste buds.
Now, let’s get to the good stuff. Deutsche Küche offers two mouthwatering flavors: Lemony Greens and Cheese Truffle.
Deutsche Küche Cheese Truffle Knopfli
If you’re a cheese lover, this one’s for you. The Cheese Truffle Knopfli is rich, creamy, and oh-so-indulgent. It’s like mac ‘n’ cheese but elevated to a whole new level. It s made with cheddar cheese and a truffle sauce.
Deutsche Küche Lemony Greens Knopfli
This version sounds like a zesty delight. A light, lemony kick should pair perfectly with the soft, pillowy Knopfli. This would be great side dish for schnitzel, grilled chicken, or fish.
Unfortunately I don’t have a picture of the packaging yet but I plan to try this one out if I can get my hands on it!

The dish had no mention of garlic in the ingredients. It had such a heavy garlic flavor! We ended up throwing it in the garbage! And we like garlic! We will not buy it again!
Not a fan
It has a very different taste that we weren’t a huge fan of. Much different from macaroni and more like a dumpling. It wasn’t horrible but my Aldi had it listened under macaroni and cheese so that kind of threw us off.
