It’s always interesting to see what Aldi stocks during the few times a year when it sells German foods and German-inspired foods under its Deutsche Küche house brand. Some of our favorites at Aldi Reviewer include German style pickles, whole grain mustard, Bavarian sweet mustard, German cream cakes, schnitzel, and a range of cookies, noodles, and sweet and savory goodies.
A recent Deutsche Küche selection that caught my eye was this package of seasoned potato slices.
The Deutsche Küche German Potato Blend cost $2.49 for a 12-ounce package at the time of publication. The package describes this as “fried potato slices with scrambled eggs, onions and spices” that “goes from skillet to plate in 10 minutes!”
This is an Aldi Find, which means it’s only in stores for a short time. Aldi does not offer online ordering for its special, so once it sells out at your local store, it’s gone.
This is sold frozen and is a product of France. (Not everything in the Aldi Deutsche Küche line is actually from Germany.)
Ingredients include potatoes, scrambled eggs, red onion, spring onion, sunflower oil, garlic, water, salt, and more. For a complete list of ingredients, see the photo below.
If you’re avoiding allergens, this contains eggs and milk.
There are about three servings in one bag, and one 110-gram serving has 170 calories, 7 grams of total fat (9% DV), 1 gram of saturated fat (5% DV), 90 mg of cholesterol (30% DV), 300 mg of sodium (13% DV), 22 grams of total carbohydrates (8% DV), 1 gram of dietary fiber (4% DV), 1 gram of total sugars, no added sugars, and 5 grams of protein.
This is cooked from frozen. To heat the potatoes, open the bag and pour the contents into a warm skillet. Cook uncovered on medium heat for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Let stand for 1-2 minutes before serving.
This was very easy to heat on the stove top. It took about 10 minutes, and I stirred frequently to keep the potatoes from sticking to the skillet. They didn’t stick badly, but they might benefit from a little cooking oil added to the skillet.
I served the potatoes alongside some Big Mac Sloppy Joes for an all-Aldi dinner, and my family readily ate the entire skillet full of potatoes and all the small bits of seasoned onions and eggs, and even the pickier people really liked this. We could easily make something similar from scratch, but you can’t beat this mix for convenience. I’ll definitely be buying a few more bags if this returns to Aldi in the future.
The Deutsche Küche German Potato Blend is a delicious mix of sliced potatoes with bits of scrambled egg, red and green onions, and various spices. It cooks from frozen in a skillet in just 10 minutes, and you aren’t likely to have leftovers. Highly recommended.
I bought this a few weeks ago as it looked like something my husband would like. I cooked it for him this past weekend using a small bit of oil. I found that even using oil the potatoes and onions still stuck to the pan. I was using a stainless steel pan and not Teflon, that could explain some it. When I served it to my husband he commented that it looked and smelled good. That didn’t last long. After taking one bite of it he blurted out, “This has a horrible aftertaste! Don’t ever buy this again!”. So, it looks like I’ll be crossing this one off the list of finds not to buy again. Oh well, ya’ win some and ya’ lose some.
I pre cooked this in the microwave, then transferred to warm skillet to crisp the potatoes. About 5 minutes in pan, stirring several times. No burned potatoes and did not stick. Delicious! Only sorry that I have to wait until the next German week to get more.
Despite the availability, I’ve seern this 3 times at my local ALDI so far this year. THANKFULLY! I bought two the last time. This is a delight to serve and can make a Brunch Smash Hit if you try.
