Aldi Spätzle (Spaetzle,Spatzle)
Spätzle is a German noodle or dumpling, typically made with flour and eggs. It is usually served as a side dish along with a meat and gravy main dish, although there are sweet dishes using spaetzle as well. Spatzle is popular in Germany but is also commonly eaten in other central European countries.
Aldi sometimes also carries dry spaetzle during german week. This plain dry egg noodle can be added to many dishes and is usually served as a side dish along with a main dish of meat and gravy.
You will see on the package that Aldi calls these Swabian Egg Noodles which refers to the region in southwestern Germany that is known for Spätzle dishes.
Since this is a dry egg noodle it can be used in many different dishes like a beef and vegetable stew, topped with cheese and butter sauce, or covered in a mushroom gravy.
There are even sweet dishes that use spaetzle like Apple Spaetzle that is made with browned butter, sugar, cinnamon, and apples.

Deutsche Küche Egg Mushroom Spätzle
I really enjoyed this item, but haven’t been able to find it since I purchased it the first – in the store or online what the Hey
Easy to follow directions right on the package and they taste soooo good. We wait for October every year just to load up on these.
No cooking instruction on the package
We cooked them like like regular egg noodles but something wasn’t right.
If they are special noodle they should have the special cooking instructions
