Recipe: homemade noodles

noodles 1

These are heavenly.  Heavenly, I say!  Definitely the best recipe for noodles I’ve ever tried.  They are so filling and have the best bite to them.  Plus you are sure to reminisce of your Grandma while you eat them, guaranteed.  So if you like beige food and Grandmas, these have your name on them.  I put them in my favorite chicken noodle soup recipe and pair them with my favorite stroganoff recipe.  They take a few hours to dry out, so make sure you plan ahead.

Ingredients
  1. 4 eggs
  2. 6 Tablespoons melted butter, cooled!
  3. 2 1/2 cups flour
  4. 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  5. 2 teaspoons salt
Instructions
  1. In a countertop mixer (or you can do all of it by hand), whisk together eggs and butter.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk all the dry ingredients together.
  3. Gradually add in the flour mixture to the egg mixture and keep mixing with the dough hook until the dough becomes stiff and all the dry ingredients are incorporated from off the bottom of the bowl. Mix together for a few more minutes to make sure everything is blended well.
  4. Divide dough into three sections. On a lightly floured surface, roll each piece of dough out to about 1/16 of an inch thick (or however thick you would like).
  5. Place each sheet of dough onto a cloth and set aside for 30-45 minutes to dry out partially.
  6. Once they are dried a little, roll each sheet into a loose spiral and cut the noodles however thick you would like with a sharp knife or pizza cutter.
  7. Once all your noodles are cut, place them in a single layer to dry out for one more hour.
  8. Once they are dry, boil them in unsalted water for 7-10 minutes.*
Notes
  1. *Once they are boiled, add the cooked noodles to the soup or as a last step in the soup prep. This keeps the integrity of the flavor in both the soup broth and the noodles. Otherwise the butter in the noodles melts into the soup broth and compromises the flavor of your soup.
  2. You can also make a few batches at a time and freeze the uncooked noodles in layers separated by wax paper in an airtight container. When ready to cook, put however many noodles you want to boil in a single layer on the counter for about 30 minutes to thaw before boiling.
