How to Make a German «Nudelpfanne»

How to Make a German Nudelpfanne

Germans have a great way to use up small amounts of leftover noodles & meat--Nudelpfanne! Literally:  noodle-pan.

While it's probably most convenient to make Nudelpfanne with leftovers (Essensreste), you might be in the mood to just make a Nudelpfanne. It's simple, delicious, and you can make it the same or different every time.

Here's the step-by-step process:


 gekochte Nudeln  Noodles (cooked)
 gekochtes Fleisch  Meat of your choice (cooked)
 Gemüse (gekocht oder auch nicht)  Vegetables (cooked or uncooked)
 1 Ei pro Portion (zerschlagen)  Eggs - about 1 per serving, beaten
geriebener Käse Shredded Cheese
Butter oder Öl Butter or oil
Salz und Pfeffer Salt and pepper

Assemble your ingredients:Nudelpfanne1

Heat up the oil (or butter) and add the meat & vegetables, heating thoroughly.


Add the noodles to heat them, and when they are heated, add the beaten egg(s). The eggs should be thoroughly cooked; this gives the dish some consistency and extra flavor through the eggs.

When the eggs are cooked, flavor to taste with salt & pepper and the dish is ready to be served. Sprinkle cheese over the top. Serve with a beverage of your choice (although beer goes quite nicely with Nudelpfanne...if you're of drinking age).


Fertig!  Guten Appetit!
