About National Noodle Ring Day
Noodle rings have fallen out of fashion as you won't find a noodle-ring recipe in many modern cookbooks. One recipe from a 1936 Pennsylvania Dutch Cook Book calls for flour, eggs, milk and cheese. The ingredients are mixed together, baked in a mold and sliced. Later versions add ketchup.
Cook’s Blessings, a 1965 Catholic cookbook, suggests serving noodle rings during Lent and filling the hole in the center of the ring with creamed fish or vegetables. Many Jews enjoy a casserole called Noodle Kugel on Shabbat and Yom Tov.
