|Doesn't that just make your mouth water? It tastes even better than it looks!|
This is a delicious adaptation to a meal I first discovered at a friend's house 5 years ago.
3-4 cups bread crumbs (preferably homemade)
1 lb noodles, preferably shells
3-4 tbsp fat (I use rendered chicken fat or beef tallow for the most flavor, but any oil will do)
1 large onion (or onion powder)
1 tbsp sugar or sucanat (optional)
2-3 tablespoons paprika
1 tsp garlic powder
Dash of pepper
Salt to taste
1. Boil the noodles in salted water until al-dente.
2. While the noodles are cooking, saute an onion in fat. Add sugar, if desired, and then add the bread crumbs to the pan. Cook for approximately 5 minutes, stirring.
3. Add the spices to the breadcrumbs.
4. Strain the noodles, then mix them with the breadcrumbs.
Have you ever heard of breaded noodles before? What is your favorite way to use up leftover bread?
