“When my dad threw this dish together, he was living from paycheck to paycheck, and we were a day or two away from the next paycheck. He looked at what he had on hand, and this is the result. *The better you drain your sausage, the drier the dish will be. I prepare it very dry.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb chub of country breakfast sausage (hot or mild, depending on your taste)
  • 12 ounces uncooked wide egg noodles, cooked according to package instructions
  • 1 medium onion, medium dice
  • 1 -3 teaspoon minced garlic (depending on your taste)
  • parmesan cheese


  1. Brown sausage in a skillet, just like you would ground beef. Add onion and garlic to sausage as it cooks. When cooked, drain off fat. Set aside.
  2. At the same time, cook egg noodles according to package instructions.
  3. After draining noodles, return them to the pot and add the sausage, onion, garlic combination. Stir and mix well.
  4. Serve, topping with parmesan cheese and seasoning with salt and pepper to taste (I like red pepper flakes).
