Pick up these Special Buys* and tell us what you think!
“Schnitzel” refers to any type of boneless meat, thinned with a meat tenderizer, coated with flour, beaten eggs and bread crumbs, and then fried. When people hear schnitzel, often they think of Weinerschnitzel, the Austrian-style schnitzel made with veal. For a taste of Germany, prepare your schnitzel with pork – or pick some up from your local ALDI this German Week!
Egg Spaetzle is a type of soft noodle or dumpling popular in southern German cuisine. These funny-shaped noodles get their origin from before noodles were shaped by machine, and instead were formed by hand or spoon. Great when served as a side to chicken or sausage, you can also mix with veggies, or drizzle with butter.
Doppel Keks Cookies
A doppel kek is made by sandwiching chocolate cream between two mouthwateringly tasty cookies. You can (and will want to) eat these anytime, anywhere – just don’t forget the milk!
