I love to cook and try new foods and recipes. I try to do my best to incorporate healthy foods, but sometimes I need a little comfort food.

Schenken Noodle


Schenken Noodle Recipe - An Old Family Recipe

March is National Noodle Month in the United States (who knew?). For those who want to celebrate it, here is a ham and noodle recipe for you.

It is also very timely as a lot of people make a ham for Easter. This is a great recipe for using leftover ham.

My German grandmother used to make schenken noodle for us as a main dish meal. Served with a salad or vegetable on the side it becomes well balanced.

It is super easy to make and very tasty.

I am going to give you two different variations -- pick whichever suits your purpose.

Schenken means "ham" in German

Schenken Noodle Recipe - Method Of Cooking #2

Sometimes, my grandmother would make the schenken noodle on top of the stove -- particularly if she was using up leftover noodles. This is also the best way to heat up Schenken Noodle made with Method #1.

This recipe tastes richer, due to the butter in the pan.

This is a nice breakfast dish. If you like you can add an extra scramble egg over the noodles as you heat them to make even more of a breakfast dish.

You can also make about 1/4 of the recipe and make it a quick serving for one.

Prep time: 20 min
Ready in: 20 min
Yields: 4


  • 10 oz noodles
  • 3 beaten eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 cups cubed or diced ham
  • 2 Tablespoons butter


  1. In a heavy skillet melt butter. Add ham and cooked noodles and stir until the mixture is heated -- about 10 minutes. Pour mixture of beaten eggs and milk over the noodles and stir for about 5 minutes until the egg is cooked.

      When I cycled through Germany and Austria I was surprised how common noodles were as a dish, I soon got used to that and often crave those Germanic recipes. I'm not a big ham eater but I'm sure I can adapt this one to work for me, thanks.
