Cold nights are soon coming, and we will be thinking about warm soups. My family loves HOME-MADE chicken noodle soup with homemade noodles. This soup is thick & creamy! I add the pictures to help you in the noodle making process, in case you've never tried your hand at making noodles before. Follow the pictures and the instructions, and you are sure to have a soup that your family will love as well. This recipe actually came from my Mother In Law. When I was first married, my husband requested that I learn how to make noodles like his mom. She actually served this thick, rich, creamy soup over mashed potatoes, with fried chicken on the side. Any 'ol way you serve it.....it's delicious!
(This make a large pot of soup - half this recipe for a smaller number.)
It keeps well in the fridge, and is just as good the next day.
5 quarts water
I double this noodle recipe for a large pot of soup
2 Cups all purpose flour
3 egg yolks
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 to 1/2 cup water
Divide dough in 3 or 4 equal parts. Roll dough, one part at a time, into thin rectangle on well floured board. Less than 1/8 " thick. (Keep the remaining dough covered). Make sure that your dough is well floured. Using a pizza cutter, cut piece of floured dough into 1/4" strips. Then cut those long strips into shorter strips. (Cut them into the length you desire your noodles) Place cut noodles onto a clean towel to dry, for about 1 to 2 hours. (Drying keeps the noodles separated when you add them to your broth to cook)
