April 7, 2015 – It’s German Week at ALDI and we’re celebrating with a few traditional German recipes and a lineup of this week’s must-have Special Buy products! ALDI first opened in Essen, Germany in 1946 by the late brothers Karl and Theo Albrecht. Now, almost 40 years since ALDI came to the U.S., we love to pay homage to our German roots.
Bratwurst, Roasted Potatoes and Onions with a Mustard Cream Sauce
This hearty and delicious German classic is easy to prepare and even easier to enjoy. A creamy mustard sauce pairs perfectly with roasted veggies and you can never go wrong with bratwurst.
If you’re not up to speed on your German food lingo, a Krautburger is a delicious beef and cabbage-filled pocket that goes especially well with ALDI German Week! Our Test Kitchen Krautburger is deliciously tasty, using buttermilk biscuits for added savory flavor.
German Style Pierogies
We’re taking the classic pierogi dish up a notch by adding light and better-for-you favorites such as kale and apples. The beer mustard sauce adds the perfect German complement to an already palate-pleasing dish.
