Let’s talk about snow days.
We all wish for them.
I mean, literally, is there anything better than waking up to discover the world coated in a blanket of snow so thick that you’re completely unable to leave the house?
Okay, now that I type that sentence out…yes. There are things better than that. Like shorts. And sunshine. And swimming pools.
You guys, I just can’t anymore.
Winter. It’s about to do me in.
I need to feel the sun on my face. I need to leave my house and spend some time in nature.
Now, yes, I know as well as anyone that I’m going to be complaining about being too hot and getting bit by mosquitos the minute the temperature hits 80, but y’all. 15 degrees is just hateful.
I’m tired and I need comfort food.
Don’t we all?
So, my go to comfort food recipe always includes buttered noodles.
I mean, that is just comfort in a bowl, right there.
When Reames asked me to create a tasty recipe for you guys to enjoy during this long winter, I knew I was going to go the butter noodle route.
Reames Egg Noodles are perfect in this recipe. Reames uses simple ingredients (eggs, flour, and water!) to produce egg noodles that taste like homemade.
They freeze them for freshness and I always have a bag or two in my freezer.
They’re thicker, heartier and tastier than the dried versions you’d find in the regular dry pasta aisle.
Nobody would ever guess these noodles aren’t homemade, my friends. So, don’t tell them our little secret, okay?
Anyway, I was feeling like we needed some pan fried noodles. I know. Sounds weird. Fried noodles. My husband made a face when I told him what was going down. Not a good face, either.
But, ya’ll. That man hoovered these noodles up like nobody’s business.
These garlic noodles are seriously good.
You’ll just boil the egg noodles according to the package instructions. I like to use half chicken broth and half water when boiling my egg noodles, just to lock in some extra flavor right at the start.
Drain the noodles and set ’em aside.
You’re going to melt an entire stick of butter in a large skillet. Please don’t be scared. This is comfort food and you can’t have comfort food without a stick of butter.
That’s a fact.
Once the butter is melted, you’ll stir in one half of a cup of Italian bread crumbs and some minced garlic. Peas and carrots would be fine in here too, but I like my comfort food to be siiiiiiiimple.
Once everything is all mixed together, you’ll dump your noodles in the pan and stir it all up. Continue cooking them for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
These garlic noodles are seriously amazing, you guys.
We like these served with pork chops and steamed broccoli. Such a simple dinner, but oh so good.
Give these a try and let me know what you think!
