Old Fashioned Homemade Noodles

I am going away from the norm.  I am not posting a Paleo/Primal/Low Carb recipe today.  I am posting a recipe that was given to me years ago by my neighbor, Wilma.  Our family always call these noodles, Wilma's Noodles.  I will still make these for the family for special occasions.  I may even have to have a bite.

We always have the noodles for our holiday meals.  My daughter and my three sons all can't wait for meals when I fix the noodles.  
Now my 5 year old grandson asks if I have any of the Thanksgiving Noodles when he visits my house.

My family can eat quite a few noodles and I usually have to make extras for them to take home.

My neighbor, who is nearing 90 years old and now lives in an assisted living establishment got the recipe from her mother, who got it from her grandmother.  It has been handed down for a few generations.


Old Fashioned Homemade Noodles


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Wilma's Noodles

1 cup flour
1 whole large egg
1 egg shell milk
2 drops yellow food coloring

Step 1:  Put the flour into a bowl.  Make a well in the center of the flour.

Step 2:  Put the egg, milk, and food coloring into the well.

Step 3:  Mix the ingredients until you can form them into a ball.  If too dry add a little more milk.  If it is too sticky add a little more flour. (It seems humidity affects the consistency.)

Step 4:  Flour a surface and roll the dough out.  Make sure it is pretty thin.  

Step 5:  Cut the dough into workable sections and roll the pieces up one at a time.  Cut the noodles.  We like them cut pretty thin.

Step 6:  After the noodles are cut put them on a cookie sheet to dry overnight.  Move them around occasionally so they dry evenly.  If they start to dry out too much put a damp towel over the noodles.

Step 7:  Cook the noodles in chicken broth until they are tender. Approximately one hour.  Salt and pepper to taste.

Notes:  I usually triple or quadruple the recipe  to feed 6-9 people with large appetites.

Dried noodles can be placed in a plastic bag and stored for a couple of weeks.  You can also dry the noodles and put in freezer bags and store in the freezer for a couple of months.

I needed to get the recipe recorded for my family members for the future.

  1. I love homemade pasta... not sure I'd have the patience to make them though. They always look like a lot of work :-)

    1. They do take lots of work, but so worth it! I went a few years without making the noodles and my sons asked me if I could start making them again. It's a labor of love for my children.

  3. I love this recipe! A friend of mine showed me how to make homemade noodles back when I was in college, but over time, I've forgotten. Thank you for sharing. Minus the food coloring, I think this is exactly how she showed me!

    1. My neighbor did not like the noodles to be so colorless. She thought they looked so much better. My kids like them with the yellow. When they were younger they wanted to know what they would look like with different colors. I wasn't sure they would want to eat them though.
