Crumby Noodles

Crumby Noodles are one of those sides we always begged my mom to make. Now I can make them myself - which means I will probably never be able to get her to make them for me again.

I documented the making of my first batch of Crumby Noodles, so I figured I would share my knowledge with all of you. That's right, I'm going to teach you how to make them! Don't worry - it isn't rocket science and you can't really mess it up. In fact, I'm guesstimating on the measurements... it really depends on how much you're making and how crumby you want your Crumby Noodles.

You will need:
Egg noodles, salt, garlic salt, butter, bread.

*Fill a pot with water - set it to boil.

While you are waiting for the water to boil...

*Take two slices of bread, and grate with cheese grater.
*Melt about 2 tbs of butter in a frying pan.
*Add a dash of garlic salt and table salt - (about a couple shakes)
*Add bread crumbs. Keep the bread crumbs moving so they don't burn. They should look like this when they are finished.IMG_0608
*Take them out of the pan and set them aside.

You water should be boiling by now. Add your pasta, strain when done.

*Add a 1 tbs of butter (it really depends on how many noodles you have and how much butter you like) and stir.

*Stir in breadcrumbs....



  1. I must admit that the thought of grating bread does sound odd to me, but the finished product looks pretty tasty.

    I sprinkled garlic salt on my daughters mac n cheese for years, now I have my son hooked as well. For some reason garlic salt just goes great with pasta.

    Just might have to whip some of this up for the wife tonight. I have a feeling she would love it too.

    Thanks for the recipe,

  2. These aren't AS good re-heated -the crumbs get a little soggy.... but still pretty tasty ;-)
