Homemade Noodles

There is a food product I never, ever have on hand. I've never thought about it, never needed it and didn't realize until the last 5 years or so that a lot (A LOT!) of people do. It's a Bisquick mix. It seems every time I'm seeing recipes for biscuits, homemade noodles, dumplings, pancakes, waffles and even a lot of breads... they start with this mix. Ewww!

It's sad to think that this chemical tasting mix is what people will come to equate homemade biscuits, pancakes and other food items with. No wonder everyone raves about their grandmothers biscuits or dumplings. They taste 'real' and 'fresh' and not laden with preservatives. If it's the simplicity of the mix you want, well, you already have the ingredients in your home. Do you have flour? Sugar? Baking Powder? There are a hundred copy cat recipes online for bisquick (maybe I'll post some here in the next couple days to help you out) because you can whip up a homemade mix that is exactly the same, simple, quick, easy to use and tastes so much better without preservatives ruining the flavor.

Now, go make yourself some homemade noodles. You can cook them in chicken broth, add them to homemade chicken soup, make chicken and noodles or chicken and dumplings with them, serve them with a red sauce of your choice, an alfredo sauce... go crazy! Me? I'll be making them today and happily eating with a little butter, salt and pepper. One of my favorite comfort foods.



Homemade Noodles


2 c flour
1 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
3 eggs
4 T cream (milk in a pinch)

Put the flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Make a well in the middle and add the eggs and cream. Stir with a fork to bring together. Roll thin on a floured surface. Let dry a few minutes and cut. If using right away cook in boiling water/broth 2 minutes. If you want to store them, let them air dry 1-2 hours and then freeze. Cook 5 minutes in boiling water/broth from frozen.
