To go with the Deutsche Kuche Pork Schniztzel (review here) I decided to try the Deutsche Küche Mushroom Spätzle from Aldi as well, as a side dish.
I was not a fan of the only cooking options being microwave.... But I was excited that the frozen spätzle fit perfectly inside my le cruset stoneware as you can see in the picture. (see similar here). I popped my Breville Smart Oven (who needs a full size oven?!) on 350F and threw this in for an unknown amount of time? Basically until the rest of the meal was ready, maybe 30 minutes? It worked great!
Split between 2 people, this was the perfect amount for a side that was enjoyed, but not too much of the same taste that you got tired of it.
Hey get $10 off Instacart!
Rating: *** 3/4 Stars - I’d get this again next year!
* - Terrible, would never buy again
** - Okay, but would not buy again
*** - Pretty good; I’d get this again next year/season
(We know how Aldi offers things for limited time each year)
**** - Loved it! I’ll recommend this to friends and family any day!
Make your own Spätzle Recipe
Spätzle is actually really easy to make and we’ve done it many times. All you need is:
or cool Pasta Cooker Pot
Spätzle Recipe for approx. 4 people:
Mix 3 cups of flour with 2 eggs, 1 tsp salt, 1.5 cups water.
Put in the spätzle maker and go back and forth over the boiling water.
Let them cook about 5 minutes until they float at the top of the water.
Use a strainer to take them out.
Delicious when fried in a bit of butter after being initially boiled/cooked!
Give it a try! Use it with any sauce you’d like or as the base for comforting dishes like cabbage and noodles!
