  • Cook the noodles according to package instructions.

  • Bake for 20 minutes. Top with bread and butter mixutre and bake for 5 more minutes or unitl the bread is golden brown.
  • Serve and enjoy!


You want to cook your egg noodles according to package instructions, subtracting 2 minutes from the boiling time. For example if your package says to cook for 10 to 12 minutes, you want to cook your noodles for 8 minutes.
If you want to make this recipe easier, skip the bread and make this with 1 cup of broken down Ritz crackers that have been tossed with 1 tablespoon melted butter.
