This Amish egg noodles recipe is one of the most requested side dishes from my kids! They just love these easy buttered noodles.
I don’t want to be presumptuous or anything, but these Amish Egg Noodles are your new favorite side dish.
Just wait. You’ll see.
My daughter and I are both total pasta lovers, so when I’m asking what to make for dinner she always pipes up with “blanket noodles.” I know, blanket noodles sound weird, but she just calls them that because the shape of the egg noodles I buy are long and wide, like blankets. Ha! That girl cracks me up.
Anyway, you can use any dried egg noodles for this, but I really love the larger shapes for this easy side dish.
How to cook egg noodles:
This recipe is one of those hands off, set it and forget it recipes that is super forgiving. You basically bring some chicken stock and a bouillon cube to a boil, dump in some noodles, return to a boil, and then turn off the heat, cover the noodles, and walk away.
Thirty minutes later you have the most perfectly satisfying comfort food… True story.
Well, I did skip one important step…butter!
After the noodles are cooked through, you drop in a half stick of butter (or more! I won’t judge!) and then stir in a little parsley, salt, and pepper.
We really like the simplicity of this dish. These noodles just have a nice, mellow, buttery vibe going on. Love them so much!
Can Amish egg noodles be reheated?
Yes, and they still taste great! You can microwave them until warm stirring every minute.
You might want to add a little extra butter if they appear to look a little dry. More butter never hurt! 😉
