Bacon Sour Cream Noodles

Noodles with a sour cream sauce, salty bacon and the surprise of the bunch – cabbage! They come together in no time at all to make a comforting and hearty side dish that can fill in as a main.

Michael Symon made this in 5 minutes on his new show, The Chew. Have you seen it? I’m just a wee bit addicted to it, mostly because I like hearing Symon giggle and I like his style of cooking. It brings me joy. Not to mention Carla from Top Chef is a part of it too. Love her. Hootie-hoo.

This is my entry for Side Dish Saturdays, a weekly event I started to bring more attention to side dishes and give them the respect and love they deserve.

I would love it if you linked up your side dishes! I only have two guidelines for linking to the event.

Your link must be a side dish; no soups or recipes with meat/poultry. Old posts are ok but. . .

The post must have a link back to my site. All other links will be deleted; every link will be checked.

The linky will be open until Monday at midnight eastern time. If you get here late – no worries – just link up next week.

Side Dish Saturdays: Bacon Sour Cream Noodle Surprise

Noodles with a sour cream sauce, salty bacon and the surprise of the bunch - cabbage! They come together in no time at all to make a comforting and hearty side dish that can fill in as a main.

Ingredients:

8 ounces bacon
8 ounces egg noodles
2 tablespoons butter
1 small onion, chopped
1 small head of cabbage, shredded or thinly sliced (I used napa)
extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
sea salt and fresh black pepper
1 + 1/2 cups sour cream
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped

Instructions:

  1. Cook bacon in large skillet over medium-low heat until crispy; drain on paper towels. Cook pasta according to package directions in plenty of salted water.
  2. Meanwhile, carefully drain grease from pan; add butter, onion and cabbage. Cook over medium-low heat until tender, stirring often. Drizzle olive oil over top and season with salt and pepper.
  3. 3. Add noodles and sour cream to cabbage. Toss well. Taste and season with salt and pepper if needed. Sprinkle parsley and crumble bacon over top. Serve immediately.

    Side dishes tend to be a little underestimated and they shouldn’t be. They can enhance your main dish’s flavor or throw it to the garbage. This one definitely belongs to the first category!

    Okay so total coincidence but I JUST found out about The Chew yesterday from my friend Lauren (of Keep it Sweet).  NEED TO SEE.  This totally looks exactly like what I would expect from a Symon dish.  Unapologetically delicious.

    Oh, I want some of this right now and it’s only 6:43 a.m. :) I would seriously love to try this but my husband will not eat cabbage. This may be one of those things I have to make for myself and tell him to eat a burger….lol
