Wartime Eggs In Noodle Nests

4261CB12-855F-4CDB-8715-2174F2A53C52

Wartime Eggs In Noodle Nests is a recipe I found in the book Grandma’s Wartime Kitchen by Joanne Lamb Hayes. This book has recipes from the WWII time that uses basic ingredients they had on hand. With so many people unable to spend a lot of money on food now, due to the pandemic, I thought this would be a good recipe to share. It uses a dozen eggs and cheese providing protein for your entire family. It is very filling and doesn’t cost a lot to make. You bake this until the egg yolks are cooked to your desired doneness, soft or hard.

    • I don’t know if you like Ramen Noodles or not but what about using just the noodles in the single serving pack (pitch the seasoning pouch)? Break the noodles into smaller pieces. Then I would cook the noodles, drain and add a little less than 1/4 cup milk, salt and pepper to taste and 1/4 cup cheese. Place in a small oven safe bowl, make an indentation and add the egg. Not sure how long it will take the egg to cook so keep an eye on it. You could also scramble the egg with the milk and just mix it in with the noodles then bake. I hope this helps. Let me know what you do and if it turned out good will you please?
