    Does anyone have a good one they would share? I "hope" to be swimming in eggs in another month or 2, so I just want to be prepared. I thought homemade egg noodles would go great with the 25 cornish x's we put in our freezer last week!

    I have my grandmothers recipe....she was from KY..and I always LOVED her noodles.

    1 egg
    1/2 tsp salt
    1Cup flour
    1/2 egg shell of water( I am assumeing about 2 tablespoons)

    Mix wet ingredients lightly.
    In a seperate bowl, sift 2/3 cup flour. Make a hole in the center and add the wet ingredients. stir with a butterknife....adding the rest of the flour untill stiff. Stir in one direction! ( grandma said this part is crucial) ??? ok.....turn out onto a floured board, knead untill smooth and elastic. Roll out as thin as possible to prevent sticking...let stand 30 min or so, untill dry on top. Cut in 1/2 and roll it up like a jelly roll. Slice into noodles... unroll....then she would hang hers to dry.

    Deb, I'm glad you posted this. I'm planning on making noodles when my chickens really get cranked up. I don't have a pasta machine (although I'd like the attachment for my mixer), so I was glad to see this one is all on the counter.

    I dont use a pasta machine either. This is sooo easy...like makeing biscuits! Once you do make it a few times....it just comes natural. Enjoy!

    The rcipe I use uses many more eggs.

    7 eggs
    2 cups flour
    1 t. salt
    1/2 eggshell milk (seems silly but must be important-doesn't work without it.)

    Blend all ingredients then start adding more flour until it is smooth and doesn't stick to your fingers. I then run it through my noodle attachment for my kitchen aid -which I love.
    If you don't have a noodle maker, roll it out to desired thickness-adding more flour as needed. Then flour it again, roll it up and slice your noodles to desired width.
    The noodles can then be cooked or dried. Lay them out on cookie sheets and let them air dry. (in the summer, I lay them in the sun and they dry in a day. In the winter, inside it takes atleast two days.) Then bag them. If they are not completely dry they will mildew, so be sure.
    I bag them in pretty bags, tie them with ribbon and give them out for the holidays. Everyone LOVES them!

    I make a mix of all purpose flour and semolina flour, with a bit of salt. With the pile of flour on my pastry board, I make a well in the middle. I crack several eggs into the well, with a little bit of olive oil. With my fingers, I start swirling the eggs around and incorporating the flour into the eggs. I add as many additional eggs as I need to use up the flour. Then I give it a couple of quick kneads, roll and cut as desired.

    I bet this wasn't very helpful at all! [​IMG]

    Quote:I use the same one but instead of the water I use milk.

    I also cover the table in flour and call the kids in to cut them with a pizza cutters. It keeps them busy for a bit and they love helping me. Sometimes I get alphet bet noodles from them or hearts and that.

    I like to add a few extras to my basic recipe like:
    lemon herb seasoning
    oregano and basil
    My family loves the extra flavor when I use them.

    Also try duck egg noodles, their yummy!

    I usually give gift baskets for Christmas to our adult family members, and I was thinking that homemade noodles would be a nice treat for them. Thanks for all the recipes y'all.
    WoodlandWoman - I remember seeing a show on TV called Lydia's Italian Table, and she always made the noodles by hand like you said, stirring with her fingers.

    I think the most important part is letting the kids roll then cut, I dry mine over yardsticks stuck in every cubbyhole that will hold one. The best part is the kids trying to determine which noodle was thiers after they are cooked(the ones that are 2 inches wide are preaty easy to determine who didn't cut very good though) [​IMG]
