When we were little, my mother would frequently prepare these buttered noodles. Until I made them for supper while doing one of my pantry purges to use up odds and ends, I had completely forgotten about them. Basic, but tasty.

I usually have all the ingredients on hand, along with Seasoned Peas and Onions, and the flavor profile is so straightforward that it goes well with almost anything.

It turns out that hubby really enjoyed them, so they’ve returned as a regular side dish. Because seasoned buttered noodles are so versatile, they go well with almost any dish.

This is the easiest side dish recipe there is!

  • Uncooked egg noodles: Egg noodles have a soft texture and a subtle, savory flavor. While some may even refer to them as “yolk-like,” others are made solely of egg whites.
  • Butter: Either salted or unsalted is acceptable; it just depends on our preferences. I occasionally even use yogurt butter with a hint of tang.
  • Homemade seasoned salt– or store bought, like Lawrys. This is made with onion, garlic, and white pepper powders, salt, and a tiny bit of paprika. It tastes good.
  • Black pepper: I like to add a zestier black pepper in addition to the milder white pepper that’s included in the seasoned salt. Feel free to omit this.
