Poor Mom’s “Keilbasa” and Egg Noodles

Sharing is caring!

This poor mom’s kielbasa and egg noodles recipe is easy to do, and it’s great for using up all the hot dogs we have in our freezer.

This will be a great recipe in the winter when we have those daggone frozen meat sticks in the freezer and no desire to grill.

Cast of characters: One pack Jumbo franks, carrots (organic is extra yummy), package of egg noodles, and a tablespoon of butter (not pictured).

Put a pot of water on the stove to boil for the egg noodles. While you’re waiting, cut up your carrots into thin discs or do like I did: take your veggie peeler and make carrots ribbons! Sonny Boy and Hubby both enjoy when I do this and I love it because they cook a lot quicker. Plus, it looks purdy.

Throw those egg noodles in that water. Cook until done. THEN take the noodles out of the water (don’t drain the water!) and place in a bowl.

Make sure the heat is off and then place the carrots in the water. How clever is that? It will soften them just enough for their next adventure. Stay tuned, dear carrots and be well.

Ok, now to the hop-dogs. Cut the dogs at an angle, about a 1/4 inch thick. What does that look like, you say?

Like that. There. You happy? Now turn on the heat to medium high under your handy dandy cast iron skillet, drop in that butter and place one layer of the sliced hop-dogs in that hot bad boy. No iron skillet? Just use any 9 or 10 inch skillet you have.

Brown off the slices until they caramelize, about a minute or so on each side. Once done with the first batch, move on to the next batch until they are all brown and crusty. What could be better than a crusty slice of hop-dog? In a word, nothing.

Once you are done with the hop-dogs, throw the carrots into the skillet and toss them a bit. You gotta get that hop-dog, butter flavor on them. Then toss in the noodles and turn the heat down to medium. Toss once again. Add a few shakes of salt and a few shakes of pepper.

NOW, add back the hop-dogs and toss one last time. Turn off heat. Taste and adjust for seasoning. Serve in a big ol’ bowl. Eat. Bug your eyes out. Eat more. Sit back. Feel your full tummy. Lay down on your couch. Close your eyes. Proceed into hop-dog coma.

See how easy that was? It you are a tight budget, and need to use up hot dogs, this kielbasa and eggs noodle recipe is definitely for you.
