homemade egg noddles
Yummy note: While doing some blog organizing, I can't believe I haven't posted this recipe yet! Yikes! I love this simple, down home egg noddle recipe. It is an old family favorite, usually served with canned beef by my Aunt Vera. My mom's sister has been serving this for as long as I can remember, and we just love it. Out of town family members always ask for Vera's homemade canned beef and noodles when there is a gathering, so you know it is a keeper recipe! :) Over the summer before school started my daughter, my mom, and I stopped by my aunt Vera and uncle Eric's house just to make noodles! I don't think I've helped make noodles with my aunt in many many years, definitely grade school days probably when I used to go to their farm and hang out there in the summer time. So making this recipe with my little one was a big treat to share. We had such a great time, that Alicia enjoys making them with me every so often for a treat. Usually my aunt makes these noodles from memory so forgive me if these ingredient portions aren't just exact, but I've tried to measure it out in the numerous times I've made it since our trip that day. I think it makes roughly a pound of dry pasta. Either way, enjoy this basic egg noodle recipe that really hits home.
