Aldi Spätzle (Spaetzle,Spatzle)
Spätzle or Spaetzle is a staple of German Week at Aldi and you can find it either dry or frozen. Deutsche Küche Spaetzle is an Aldi Find during German Week so it is only available a limited time. 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.
It will be available for the spring 2022 Aldi German Week starting 5/4/2022. The dry Spaetzle will sell for $2.99 per 17.6 ounce package. Aldi’s Frozen Spätzle will sell for $3.29 per package (11.2-12 ounce). The frozen spaetzle comes pre-cooked and with sauce/cheese/gravy while the dry is plain dry noodles for you to use however you like.
Aldi will have three varieties of non-frozen Spaetzle with sauce included available as an Aldi Find the week of 6/8/2022. This will be a pantry item so it is not frozen or refrigerated. I am not sure if this will be dry noodles with a sauce you can add or precooked noodles mixed with a sauce. They will be available for $2.19 per package (4.76-5.11oz). You can choose from cheese spaetzle, mushroom spaetzle, or onion spaetzle.

Aldi’s Dry Spaetzle
Aldi 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.
What are your favor Spatzle dishes? Do you buy the frozen versions or prefer to make your own dish with the dried spaetzle?
