Oodles of Noodles

Monday, January 10, 2011

I have always loved regional type cookbooks. One of my favorite cookbook authors is Marcia Adams. I have all her books and many of my *specialties* are recipes straight from her books. One of our family favorites for many, many years has been Noodles With Buttered Crumbs (click for printable recipe) from Marcia's Cooking From Quilt Country. Totally COMFORT food. So simple and yet pairs well with so many mains.

Birthday son requested Noodles with Buttered Crumbs for his birthday supper. I was all set to make that when my new Country Living magazine showed up in my mailbox. The Noodle Pudding recipe from reader Barbara Wener looked like heaven and I thought birthday son might like this even better and if not, I'd make his favorite too. Yes, I made 2 different noodle dishes for the same meal. You do things like that for your kiddos! He said he couldn't choose and loved them both.

Noodle Pudding
(Printabale Version)

1 cup Panko crumbs
1 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted plus more for greasing dishes
8 ounces wide egg noodles, cooked and drained
1 cup sour cream
1 cup cottage cheese
1/2 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
1 medium onion, finely chopped (I used a very small shallot instead)
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes, or to taste

Preheat oven to 350°F. In a small bowl, toss panko with melted butter and set aside. Butter six 1-cup ramekins. In a large bowl, combine remaining ingredients. Divide noodle mixture between prepared ramekins and top with reserved bread crumbs. Bake for 1 hour. Serve hot.

  1. Olive Cooper said...:

    I saw that recipe and it looks yummy. You are a wonderful Mom.

  1. Heidi said...:

    I love Marcia Adams. I still make her baked onions every once in a while. She was a favorite to watch every week, in the days before the Food Network. Thank you for sharing.

  1. Pam said...:

    We used to a restaurant that served something like that with their meals. It was heavenly. I will definately give this one a try.

  1. Gail, the pictures have me drooling in my socks. Just so comforting and yummy looking.

    Happy Monday!

    Hugs, Barb ♥

  1. This sounds wonderful, Gail! How I would love to dish into one of those dishes right now! I also love the dishes themselves! I've been looking for some small black gratin or casserole dishes.

  1. Kim McCallie said...:

    These look delicious. We're big noodle lovers here at my house.

  1. Miz Helen said...:

    Your Noodle creation looks amazing I would just love it. Thank you for sharing your recipe and you have a great week!

  1. I just stumbled upon your blog and plan to come back and explore when time allows. The list of recipes is very enticing. I've already printed out the noodle ones. Thanks!

  1. Yummm! Our family loves any kind of starch, butter, cheese combo. These sound so good.

  1. lyndaloo said...:

    Carbs are my downfall! And thanks to you I think I've got every Marcia Adams she has put out. LOL

  1. Diann said...:

    Gail, this looks so good and easy. Love it!

  1. Oh my..did you hear that? I think everyone in blogland must of heard that loud rumbling from my tummy. ;) That looks so yummy easy too! :)

  1. Sherrie said...:

    Oh my gosh, kicked up mac and cheese. I love it. Guess what I will be trying tonight. I love it that it is individual serving size. We are having a blizzard here in Maine today, and this will be perfect for comfort food supper. Thanks for sharing.

  1. Gail,

    I have almost all the Marcia Adams Amish cookbooks. My favorites, not sure which one is the Amish Apple Pie, and Baked Ham in Milk. Thanks for sharing!

  1. Melynda said...:

    This will be a good way to use up the cottage cheese and make a wonderful dinner side dish at the same time, thanks! Honey says he doesn't like cottage cheese, but I am thinking he won't know it is in there!

  1. Miz Helen said...:

    Hi Gail,
    I was so excited to see that you brought your wonderful noodle dish to Full Plate Thursday. That is one of the first things that will go on my plate and I can hardly wait! Thank you so much for coming over and you have a great week!

  1. bj said...:

    OMGosh, your favorite recipe just makes me weak in the knees. Can't wait to try it.
    I saw the Noodle Pudding in my Country Living and decided to make it, too. Not sure I'll serve both at the same meal...wanna stretch out the goodness, ya know. :)))
    xo bj

  1. Lisa Grace said...:

    Sounds yummy! Thanks for stopping by Graceful Abandon and inviting me over :) Can't wait to peruse your cast iron section...awesome!

  1. OMG, LOVE THIS!!! one thing though, I'm not fond of Worcestershire sauce, DO you think a good Brown mustard could be substituted??? I make baked macaroni with good grainy German mustard and they are to die for, SO what do you think???
    This is SO Yummy!!! Thank you so much for the recipe...
    Hugs, Donna

  1. Anna said...:

    My mouth is watering just looking at your wonderful pictures. Wow. I'll definitely be trying this sometime this winter. Can't do it now, we've been treating ourselves to too much comfort food lately - thank goodness we have a dog who needs walking!

  1. Alison said...:

    Coming over from Miz Helen's Full Plate Thursday....I posted Black Bean and Sweet Potato Chili....Mmmm!

    This noodle recipe looks delicious. We eat a lot of noodles here. Our 20 month old loves noodles of every shape but we're getting bored with mac and cheese, buttered noodles or spaghetti! This recipe will be a welcome change to our normal noodle routine!

    Thanks so much for sharing!

  1. Kathleen said...:

    That looks so good! And I love the casseroles too! Saving that recipe for a calorie splurge!

  1. Pam said...:

    Sounds wonderful and looks delicious.

  1. LV said...:

    I would sure enjoy a big helping of this. In fact, I will take leftovers.

  1. Donnie said...:

    They look so delicious. I'm not sure which is which but my hubby is happiest when I make the type of food his momma cooked.

  1. Pioneer Beauty said...:

    Hi Gail,

  1. SnoWhite said...:

    Goodness -- what a tasty dish.

  1. NanE said...:

    Both of these recipes sound so yummy! I love noodles and think they are the ultimate comfort food. Hubby had to work last night and wouldn't be home for dinner so I made tuna noodle casserole because he hates it and I LOVE it! I took a little stroll around your blog and you have some really good recipes and I can't wait to come back and snag some of them. :) Nan
