Bite Club: Cheesy, pickly dumplings
👋 Hey, it's Monica. I'm a sucker for novel foods.
- So when I spotted "pickle cheese schupfnudeln" among the new Aldi Oktoberfest items, I was like, "Yes, please!"
What's happening: Schupfnudeln means rolled noodles, but these chewy fingers, eaten on the Alsatian border of France and Germany, are more like elongated gnocchi.
- After a couple of minutes in the microwave, the frozen fingers and cheese pucks bubbled into potato pillows bathed in rich, delicious pickle-ish cheese.
Warning: These big, soft dumplings (from Deutsche Küche) can easily send you into a carb coma, so avoid them for workday lunches.
- You'll find them in Aldi freezers this week — unless I've just caused a run on schupfnudeln.
