Mom’s Czech Egg Noodles

Mom’s Czech Egg Noodles


Raised by a frugal Czech and Scottish mother, we cooked all our meals from scratch using simple and inexpensive ingredients.  One of my favorites is homemade egg noodles, cut with a knife, and hung to dry before boiling them in water and salt or better yet in chicken broth, also from scratch.


Tonight, due to cooler temps, I made scratch noodles with boiled chicken, the trinity and sage.  Willing autumn to arrive and soon.

Noodles:  2.5 cups flour and  a dash or two of salt, add 2 eggs, 1/2 cup of milk, 1T butter and combine.  Knead and allow to rest for 30 minutes before rolling out.  Cut into strips and hang to dry for at least two hours. Boil in a lot of salted water.

Add to chicken and veggies and broth.  We fried fresh sage and added that, plus hot sauce and Parmesan cheese. From scratch, just, almost like mom.
