Earlier this week while posting my menu, I mentioned that we would be having homemade noodles. I’m not sure I’ve told how I do this, so here’s an easy recipe.
1 egg, beaten
1/2 t. salt
2 T. milk
1 cup flour
Combine egg, salt and milk; add enough flour to make a stiff dough.
Roll very thin on floured surface; let stand 20 minutes.
Drop into boiling soup or boiling water and cook uncovered, about 10 minutes.
My mom made these when I was little, and I remember the fun I had unrolling the dough. It’s very easy to make from just a few things you have around the pantry, and I love the way you know there are no hydrogenated oils or preservatives in them. In addition, I like to add some whole wheat flour to make them healthier. They are yummy with chicken, or even as a side dish with pretty much any meal.
Hmmm … with the cooler weather approaching, how about chicken and noodles for dinner this week? I bet the whole family will approve.
