Homemade is always better, right? I think so. If you have been hanging with me for a while, you know how I feel about making my own spice mixtures, the various sauces I so frequently use in recipes and the many rubs and marinades we enjoy when grilling. Making homemade dumplings and noodles is easy. Making homemade pasta, something many of you have urged me to accomplish, is a whole ‘nother thing, yet still a goal of mine. And I will, one day reach it. What I like about this recipe is that it is easy, requires no special tools and just four ingredients. I like to add it to soups, especially chicken, and many times use in when making dumpling dishes. Enjoy!
Makes about 3 cups of cooked noodles for soup and dumpling recipes
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup plain flour
Combine all ingredients in a bowl; dough should be stiff. On a floured surface, roll out very thin. Dust with flour and let stand for 20 minutes. Roll dough up loosely and slice in 1/4-inch wide sections, wider for dumplings. Unroll and spread out the noodles, let dry for a couple of hours. You can also store in a sealed container until needed. Drop into your boiling liquid and cook for about 10 minutes or until tender.
