Amish Buttered Noodles
While I got your attention, let's talk about Amish brown butter noodles for a bit...
Buttered noodles are literally one of the easiest dishes to make. It's a kid-friendly dish (because what kid doesn't like pasta?) and a great side dish with many different meals. Not to mention that they are comfort food at its finest.
These Amish brown butter noodles are rich, a bit creamy, full of flavor, and oh so buttery! There is so much to love about these Amish-style noodles.

Pennsylvania Dutch Noodles Recipe
We can't make these brown butter noodles with just any old noodles though. I mean, you could. But they wouldn't be quite as tasty and amazing.
Please do yourself a favor and buy Amish egg noodles (these are one of my favorite kinds) to make this dish. They're easy to find and taste so much better.
Amish noodles come in different widths, and it doesn't matter which size you use. Personally, I like the wide noodles the best. The extra-wide noodles are a bit too big for my taste, but use whatever you prefer.
Or, if you're feeling adventurous, you could make homemade Amish egg noodles using the noodle recipe from my chicken pot pie. Roll out the dough and allow it to dry for at least an hour or two before cutting it into noodles.
Buttered Egg Noodles with Chicken Broth
You can make Amish butter noodles in different ways and they are all tasty. Cooked Amish noodles mixed with brown butter are amazing no matter exactly how you make them.
But these Amish buttered noodles, which are cooked in chicken broth and brown butter, have so much depth to their flavor.
This recipe also asks for a can of cream of chicken soup, and it adds a bit more creaminess to the texture. But, if you prefer it without, feel free to omit the can of soup and add more broth or even milk.
As an Amish kid, I ate a lot of buttered noodles.
The Amish people are hard workers and they eat a lot of carbs. Many times we ate potatoes, noodles, corn, and bread, all in the same meal. That's a lot of carbs, my friend. But they help to keep you full longer and give you energy.
We rarely ate snacks between meals, so if we wanted energy to work hard from lunch (what we called dinner) to supper, we had to fill up.
But if you don't get a lot of exercise you may want to only eat small servings of these Amish brown butter noodles. Because they are rich and will stick to the ribs 🙂 .
How to Make Easy Amish Noodles
In this Amish egg noodles recipe, the noodles get cooked in chicken broth and brown butter. So we begin by browning the butter in a large pot.
To make brown butter, simply cook the butter until it is caramel colored with brown flecks in the bottom. But it can quickly go from perfect brown butter to burnt butter, so make sure to keep your eye on it.
Add the chicken broth, cream of chicken, and bouillon to the brown butter. Whisk until smooth and bring to a boil.
Add the egg noodles, then stir and bring it back to a rolling boil. Turn off the heat, cover, and set the pot aside for 25 - 30 minutes. Stir once after about 10 minutes.
After sitting for about 30 minutes, the noodles should be ready to eat. Stir, drizzle with more brown butter (if desired), sprinkle with parsley, and serve.
What Could I Serve with Amish Buttered Noodles?
These PA Dutch brown butter noodles are great to eat on their own.
But they are also a perfect side dish with Rice Krispy Chicken, PA Dutch Chicken Croquettes, grilled chicken, Amish Meatloaf, Barbecue Meatballs, roast beef, sliced ham, and just about any other meat entreés.
Serve these Amish-style noodles to your kids, and it may quickly become one of their most-requested side dishes.
