Brown Butter Egg Noodles with Sweet Potatoes

Egg Noodles tossed in brown butter and topped with candied sweet potatoes. This flavor-packed dish makes the perfect side or light meal!Brown Butter Egg Noodles with Sweet PotatoesThat time of year has come, The leaves are falling and the scent of cinnamon, pumpkin and sweet potato is everywhere. I don’t know if it’s just me, but as soon as fall comes around, I get the urge to pop out the cinnamon and butter and begin immersing myself with the warm and nutty flavors of Autumn.

There’s nothing better than the smell of brown butter and cinnamon. Toss in sweet potatoes and a pinch of brown sugar and you’ve got yourself the perfect flavor profile for Autumn.

This year I decided to spice up the sides a bit an instead of the usual sweet potato sides, we ‘re making these flavor-packed egg noodles with sweet potatoes. The noodles are tossed in a browned butter and topped with diced sweet potatoes that have also been caramelized in the same brown butter.

For the egg noodles, I used the Reames brand noodles because they’re made with 3 simple ingredients; eggs, flour, and water so they’re as close to homemade noodles as you can get! Freezing for freshness allows them to maintain a homemade taste and texture. This makes them a heartier and tastier alternative to the thin, dried noodles that can fall apart in stews!! They can be found int he freezer aisle at your local supermarket!
