LID: Noodle Ring? What is that?

Noodle Ring

Happy National Noodle Ring Day. Noodle Ring? What in the world is a noodle ring? To be honest I had no idea as well. I had to look this one up. Noodle Rings were popular in the United States around the middle of the 20th century. A noodle ring is comprised of baked noodles that are baked into a ring pattern via using a ring mold. Once it comes out of the oven you can add a dip in the middle of the mold. Like some old recipes, it has almost grown in obscurity. 

I love to cook, especially with old recipes. After searching the web, I found some delicious Noodle Ring recipes that I think I would like to try. Why don't you join me?
