This was a great side with a simple meatloaf dinner. I always love buttered noodles but the croutons make thos extra special. Thanks for posting Gayla. Made for PAC Spring 2010.
These are a great way to prepare egg noodles! It's a perfect side dish and I like the fact that it is very basic and simple. I would have never thought to make croutons with noodles but it works well. My croutons turned out deliciously crispy and there was just the right amount of butter for us. I used the salted butter and added lots of freshly ground black pepper. Thanks for sharing!
A very simple recipe,but like Diner,I felt that it needed a little something else just to lift it up a bit.Some garlic and a little herb would probably do the trick. Thanks Gayla.Made for PRMR.
Great recipe: extremely versatile. Just love the panfried croutons in this. To reduce the amount of butter used, I cooked mine in a mixture of half butter and half olive oil. This contributed the yummy flavour of both to the dish. The first time I made this, we enjoyed it as a side dish with lamb chops; the second time, I made it into a one dish meal by adding some finely minced garlic and onions in step four with the bread; then adding a well-drained can of red salmon, a couple of teaspoons of white wine and some fresh dill to the noodles before finally adding the croutons, onion and garlic. Both versions: wonderfully delicious. Thank you for sharing this recipe, GaylaV. Made for PRMR.
Perfect way to serve egg noodles or spaghetti or other pasta. I use Perfect Pasta With No Watching and No Sweating to cook any pasta with great success. I usually grate the bread to make buttered crumbs but liked the crunch of the croutons instead. You could also add leftover cooked veggies, peas, a sprinkle of Parmesan Cheese, and some chopped bacon bits for a variation.
I made this to go along with grilled chicken with wine sauce. It got mixed reviews from my family. My 16 yo DS loved it and 21 yo DD and myself thought it was really good, but it needed some more flavoring, some garlic and onion flavoring in addition to the salt and pepper. I did add some extra butter as it was a little dry. We LOVED the addition of the crispy croutons!!! Will definitely make it again and tweak it a bit for my family's tastes. Thanks Gayla!!!
