Noodle Pancakes

Share

In my experience, there are two things that kids always seem to love -- noodles and pancakes -- so why not make them a meal that combines both of them into one? Whenever we have pasta for dinner, I make extra to put in the fridge and use for this recipe the next day. Noodles on their own can be difficult for some little ones to eat, but these pancakes are perfect for little hands to hold on to and munch away. Still, no matter what your child's age, I find that most kids are only too happy to do away with their knife and fork whenever possible. These Noodle Pancakes easy to toss together and they also pack a ton of protein, veggies and carbohydrates into one scrumptious handful, making them perfect for any meal -- even breakfast!

    I found this recipe about a year ago and it has been my go-to quick dish ever since. I’ve done it a billion different ways adding different veggies and meats. Thank you for this recipe! My 2 year old says thanks as well ;)

    My extremely picky 3 year old said, “YUMMY” as he devoured these and completely cleaned his plate (he NEVER does that). I didn’t have egg noodles on hand, so I used bow tie pasta. Wasn’t sure if it would work, but it did! I put a bow tie noodle on top of the pancake and he loved it.

    Do you think you could used any type of noodle…like spaghetti? I would think so.

    This is similar to the breakfast frittatas I make w/ leftover noodles for my husband and me. What a great idea to make them for my little one.
