Traditional German Recipes: Part II- Schinkennudeln

Updated on September 13, 2011

Schinkennudeln, or “Ham noodles”, is a very simple and quick meal to prepare. It was one of the first traditional meals that I, myself, learned how to cook, and has been a weekly dish in my family since I can remember. Paired with a fresh green salad doused in balsamic vinaigrette, Schinkennudeln makes for a filling, midday meal.


To prepare this dish, you will need…

·      12 cups of water

·      1 tablespoon of salt

·      1 teaspoon of oil

·      a little over 8 ounces of noodles

·      a little over 5 ounces of ham

·      ½ cup of milk or crème

·      2-3 eggs

·      nutmeg

·      and 4-6 tablespoons of grated cheese (your preference)

            Cook the noodles in water (containing the salt and oil) until tender. While those are boiling, cut the ham either into thin slices or cubes. Once the noodles have been drained, place them and the ham into a lightly oiled pan. Add the milk, eggs, and nutmeg and allow the noodles and other ingredients to brown for a while, stirring frequently. Once everything is properly heated and lightly browned, serve with grated cheese on top.

      Way to put a stupid grin on my face first thing on a Sunday morning!


      P.S. I made said noodle dish for lunch yesterday, and the leftovers didn't even make it till today (apparently everyone in my household snuck to the kitchen at different times for a midnight snack). Try it soon!

      Looks super yummy mam. Except you might want to make your picture a little bigger if you can.

      The noodle dinner looks good too. :>)
