  • 1 large bag egg noodles, wide or thin
  • 5 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 15 ounce can mixed fruit cocktail, undrained
  • 1 1/2 cups Frosted Flakes cereal or Corn Flakes
  • 2 tsp butter
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • cooking spray


  1. 1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees

    2.Boil noodles as per instructions on bag.

    3.While noodles are cooking, blend eggs, vanilla, sugar, sour cream and fruit cocktail in blender and whirl until smooth.

    4.Drain noodles when done and pour into a 9 x 13 inch pan. ( We always use the disposable ones found at the dollar store or in any market)

    5.Pour blended mixture over noodles and gently coat all noodles.

    6.Crunch up the cereal just a little and top noodles. If you want, you can add the butter in dots over the cereal. Or, just leave off.

    7.Bake covered with tin foil for 30 minutes. Take off cover and bake an additional 15 minutes. Let sit out on counter for about 10-15 minutes before cutting. (I can never wait, it smells so good, but try to wait so it cuts easier) Enjoy!
