I have a great recipe for Crockpot Chicken and Noodles that is easy and yummy. I'm fully prepared to post that recipe, but first I feel compelled to share this one: Homemade Noodles. They are not hard to make, they are cheap, and they are so yummy, you might be rendered speechless upon eating them.
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 egg yolks
1 whole egg
1/3 cup water
1 tsp vegetable oil
Stir together 1 3/4 cups of flour and the salt. Make a well in the center of the mixture.
In another bowl, beat the yolks and egg with the water and oil. Add it to the dry mixture and mix well.
Knead the dough on a floured surface, using the remaining 1/4 cup of flour. Keep kneading for about 10 minutes or until your hands crumble into the dough from exhaustion. Cover the dough and let it rest for 10 minutes.
Cut the dough into four pieces.
Take each section and roll them out on a floured surface, until they are thin and about 12 inches wide. Set the rolled dough out to rest for another 20 minutes, uncovered.
Once they've rested, cut them into strips. I use a pizza cutter and just whip through them, but you could always use the jelly-roll method of rolling them up and cutting them as wide as you'd like.
Once that's done, pull the noodles apart and let them sit for several hours. Overnight is great, but six hours does just fine for me. I usually put them on a wire rack to dry, which works the best, but today they've rested on wax paper. I flipped them over after about three hours to let the other side dry.
Next week, I'll show you an easy Chicken Noodles to make with these... it's so yummy!
