The other day I was playing play-doh with my kids. Which means Rebecca was getting creative 🙂 She made “egg noodle casserole.” And asked if we could actually make it. Her ingredient list: noodles, eggs and cheese.
It sounded simple, so we gave it a try. We used egg noodles and a mix of cheeses. I also added ham since we had some to use up.
In the end it was a cross between macaroni and cheese and a ham and cheese quiche. And it was delicious!
Rebecca doesn’t usually like eggs. But she ate this no problem. Let your kids help plan and make meals…and they will eat them 🙂 Rebecca came up with the recipe. Abram helped me make it.
I made a small batch since I didn’t have many egg noodles in the house. But it was still plenty for us.
Macaroni and Quiche (or Egg Noodle Casserole)
2 cups dry egg noodles (or any noodle of choice), cooked
3/4 cup shredded cheese (we used marble and cheddar)
2 whole eggs
2 egg yolks
1/2 cup diced cooked ham (nitrate/nitrite free) (optional)
salt and garlic powder to taste
Heat oven to 375. Grease an 8″ square baking pan.
Mix the noodles, cheese, eggs, ham and seasoning. Pour into prepared pan.
Bake for 35 – 45 minutes, until eggs are set.
