  • 1/2 cup fine egg noodles (browned)
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 1 cup long-grain rice
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • salt and pepper to taste



Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

To brown egg noodles: Place noodles on a cookie sheet or jelly-roll type of baking pan and place in preheated oven. Watch closely because noodles brown quickly. Remove from oven and set aside.

Melt butter in a 2-qt oven safe saucepan.

Wash and drain rice.

Add rice and noodles to butter and saute for a couple of minutes.

Add broth and bring to a boil.

Cover and place in preheated oven for about 20 minutes or until all broth is absorbed and rice is cooked.

Season with salt and pepper.
