Because of the cooler weather, I have been in a major cooking mood. Yesterday, I remembered my Aunt making homemade egg noodles and thought to myself, “self…how hard could that be?” So I went online and googled recipes for egg noodles and up popped this recipe below. After making these incredible little dumpling noodles, I was transformed to my Aunt’s kitchen back in Ardmore, OK where she would roll out the dough until it was paper thin and drop them in boiling chicken stock.
This recipe does not disappoint. It is easy, although it does take up time. While the noodles were drying, I left and ran errands and when I came back, I proceeded to make the chicken stock and dropped them in. Depending on how thick you roll the dough is how long they need to cook. So you will need to adjust the time to fit the size noodle. They really were so good and so different from just the noodles that come out of the package. Make a pot of turkey noodle soup, using leftover turkey the Fri after Thanksgiving. These will impress your family. These came from the food.com network!
