March 31, 2016 – Founded by brothers Karl and Theo Albrecht, ALDI first opened its doors in Essen, Germany in 1946. It’s now been 40 years since ALDI arrived in the US, but we still take time every spring to pay homage to our German roots! Join us as we celebrate German Week with traditional recipes and a lineup of must-have German Special Buys you’ve been waiting for all year.
Bratwurst, Roasted Potatoes and Onions with a Mustard Cream Sauce
Tuck into this hearty German classic. It’s easy to prepare and even easier to enjoy, with a creamy mustard sauce and roasted veggies.
If you’re not up to speed on your German food lingo, a Krautburger is a beef and cabbage-filled bread pocket. YUM. Our Test Kitchen Krautburger uses buttermilk biscuits, because why not.
German Style Pierogies
Take classic, soul-satisfying pierogis up a notch by adding tangy flavors and crunchy textures from kale and apples. Drizzle with a beer mustard sauce for that perfect German zing.
Deutsche Küche Bavarian Soft Pretzels*
As far as we’re concerned, either you love soft pretzels, or you’re wrong. Dip in melted cheese or serve dusted with salt for maximum flavor.
Deutsche Küche Imported Strudel*
These deutsche delicacies are available in apple, cheese and fruit varieties. And yeah, you’ll probably want to sample all three.
Deutsche Küche Spaetzle*
Spaetzle egg noodles are a classic German comfort food. So go ahead – cozy up with a steaming bowl of buttery, cheesy noodles.
