Ham and Noodle 1-Skillet Dish

So, a while back my father-in-law and nephew were visiting on a trip to Hazen to make deer sausage. I seriously love my father-in-law. He is just a sweetheart. I knew I wanted to have some dinner on hand for when he got hungry. He doesn’t like spice! You know those Germans…pepper is spicy to them. Most everything I prefer has a lot of spice, so I needed something new, easy and quick. Enter this one-dish meal. You gotta love that!

Ham and Noodle 1-skillet dish

2 tablespoons butter
1 onion, finely diced
8 ounces egg noodles
2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1 cup half and half
1 pound deli or cooked ham, cut into 1” pieces
2 cups frozen mixed veggies (any mix is fine if you only want green beans or corn, etc.)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
3-4 ounces cream cheese, cut into cubes
salt and pepper

1. Melt the butter in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Cook onions until golden brown, about 5 mins.

2. Add broth, half-and-half, and noodles to skillet and bring to a boil. Add diced ham, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, until noodles are tender, about 8-10 minutes.

3. Season with plenty of salt and pepper. Add veggies, lemon juice and cream cheese to skillet and cook until heated through. Enjoy!

Even if your guests don’t like onion, I can’t give it up. It adds so much flavor. Just dice it very fine if anyone is picky. You could even grate it.

Add broth, half-and-half, and noodles to skillet and bring to a boil. Add diced ham, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, until noodles are tender, about 8-10 minutes. I used deli ham, but use any cooked ham you have on hand.

Cover to let the moisture sink into the noodles and cook them. Add the frozen veggies.

    My mom is the same way! One day I was making chili and she asked if I could leave the chili powder out. . .that really had me shaking my head. I just served her a bowl of beans form a can! This looks like a nice quick meal for a busy evening!

      Thanks for reading Dakota Pam! I find it funny about the spice. I think I must have gotten my Mom’s taste buds. We like a lot of the same things and thankfully she has a much more expansive palate than my father!
