Hot Buttered Noodles

I love these noodles. Well, I mean, who wouldn't? Hot savory noodles cooked in broth and dripping in butter… um, yeah, roger that!

But what I love most about these is how you cook them. Once you boil them for a few minutes, you just put the lid on and walk away. And then you can finish everything else you’re cooking, set the table, fold some laundry, feed the dog and check your email and not have to worry with them. They’re ready when you are.

I also like that the recipe makes a big batch because they refrigerate beautifully. I make these once and then serve them twice. We had these as a side dish Sunday and will have the leftovers again tomorrow night. I've also added shredded chicken to the leftovers and called it supper!

And I like that you can change up the broth to go with whatever else you’re cooking. I usually use chicken broth but have used both vegetable and beef and all three are fantastic.

Hot savory noodles cooked in broth and butter with an easy "walk away" recipe.

Hot Buttered Noodles
1 32-oz. carton chicken, vegetable or beef broth
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (optional)
12 ounces wide egg noodles (I used Mueller’s Hearty Homestyle in this batch)

In a large pot, bring broth, butter, salt and garlic to a full, rolling boil. Add noodles and boil, uncovered, for 5 minutes; stirring occasionally. Taste for salt and add more if desired.

Turn off heat, cover and let noodles set for 20-25 minutes or until tender and most of the broth has been absorbed. Stir once or twice the first 10 minutes to make sure the noodles don’t stick to the bottom of the pan. Stir again just before serving. Enjoy!

  3. This is a fantastic way to cook noodles...... gotta try this. I have an electric stove, after turning off heat do I leave pan on burner (it still has lots of heat) or move off the burner? Thanks

    1. You can leave them on the burner. I have an electric stove too. When I grow up I'm going to get a gas stove.

  7. I gotta give you props. this is the only way im cooking pasta from now on. it has worked on bow tie, penne, egg noodles, even spaghetti. it adds so much flavor to pasta that is usually pretty flavorless as it is. i even use boullion cubes instead of boxed broth to bump up the chicken flavor. good job. im hooked on the method.

  8. My favorite comfort food! My daughter asks for these as a meal. We always top with Parmesan cheese. We both love to add peas for protein. Also use low or no salt broth. Oh and pepper, tons of pepper!

  9. Can anyone tell me if they have ever had any leftovers?? LOL I'm a one-person 2-cat household and would like to try this. Obviously won't be eating all of it in one sitting but wondered what the texture is like after being in the fridge and re-warmed in the micro.

  10. can you use this recipe with another noodle? I am gluten-free and I'm not sure if there is a gluten-free egg noodle.

  11. Was wondering will the noodles be at a good temp to enjoy after sitting that long in the pot?

    1. Absolutely! They sit covered, on the burner so they are plenty hot when it's time to eat!
