Let Me Count The Ways

Egg Noodles. How I love thee. Let me count the ways...

What? You don't recite poetry to your food? Um, okay...awkward...

Well, I adore them. Can't get enough of them. Could eat them every single day.

To me, egg noodles are one of the most versatile and simple convenience foods out there. You can do almost anything with them, and they go with pretty much any protein, rounding out a meal perfectly.
Heck, you can just boil them and add a little butter, salt and pepper and your family will think you are a genius! Or add veggies for a one pot meal! Or add protein for even more punch. See...the possibilities are endless.

These are my latest creation. How? Easy. I wanted noodles. I had no idea what to make with them. I started throwing things into the pot until I achieved the flavor I was looking for. Sometimes recipe creation isn't as sexy as chefs/cooks would have you believe. But they are egg noodles. You would have to work pretty hard to screw them up.

If you are looking for a simple side dish for tonight's supper. Here you go. Or maybe a new dish for your Easter table??!! These would be so good with ham! Add your own favorite herbs and spices to make a whole new flavor profile! Have fun with it! Honestly? I think you could make a big batch on Sunday and eat them for lunch all week too! See, I told you they were versatile!
