Feeds two hungry canoeists.

Slice the bacon into small pieces like bacon bits.

Break up the noodles into smaller pieces and boil until tender. Drain, coat with oil or butter to keep them from sticking and set this pot aside.

In another pot, measure water for the potatoes adding in the extra amount needed for the milk. Mix some skim milk powder into the cold water and add in some dehydrated onions. Slowly bring to a boil then remove from heat.

Add in the cooked noodles, the potato mix, the bacon pieces and the cheddar cheese. Stir until potato mix is moistened then set aside for a couple of minutes.

Stir the mixture again and serve with a topping of grated parmesan cheese.

It's a real gut filler.


Just omit the bacon if you would rather have this as a meatless meal.
