Homemade Noodles

Here is the second installment of homemade gift ideas for December. You can see the first one here. This recipe is for simple but delicious homemade noodles. We use them for chicken and noodles, chicken soup, beef and noodles and beef soup. We will sometimes make a couple batches at once, and freeze a batch for later. When giving as a gift make a fresh batch the day before and store in the refrigerator, or pull a batch out of the freezer. They make a nice alternative to all the sweets that tempt us this time of the year, too. We think this came from a B H & G cookbook.

Homemade Noodles

1 beaten egg
2 tablespoons milk
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup flour

Mix all of the ingredients and let set for 20 minutes. Dust with flour to prevent sticking and roll very thin. Slice into ¼” wide strips and let dry for an hour. If using right away just drop them into boiling broth or water and cook uncovered for about 45 minutes. If freezing for later use lay them out on a cookie sheet and freeze, then put in a freezer bag. Mmmmm…I think I see a batch of Beef & Noodles in my near future!
