Homemade noodles (Great-Grandma's recipe)

2 eggs
milk to fill 1/2 eggshell
a pinch of salt
flour to make a stiff dough

Mix together the eggs, the milk, the salt, then stir in enough flour to make a stiff dough. Stir it in well until it's smooth.

Lightly flour a board and roll the dough out till pretty thin. Put a kitchen towel over a very large stockpot or something similar and hang the dough over it for about an hour to dry it some. Cut it into strips for noodles. Bring a pot of broth to the boil, put in the noodles and cook until noodles are done.

This is an old recipe and not real specific in directions but the noodles taste really good! I often make homemade beef/vegetable soup and add these.

  1. p.s. The original recipe read "1 egg, or 2 if for company". I've tried it both ways and it's better with 2.
