Have you ever had a recipe that you just throw things together, because that’s the way your mother taught you her recipe? Well, that’s my drop noodle recipe. I literally had to make noodles with a measured amount of flour and cracking of several eggs this past weekend to come up with a recipe that I could post… So this is what I came up with…

2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
4-5 eggs

Put the flour and salt into a mixing bowl… make a well in the flour, then crack the first two eggs into the well, mix them with a fork and slowly blend them in with the flour… Add the next egg and repeat the process… add the 4th egg and mix… I say four to five eggs because… it depends on the size of the eggs as to how many you will need… I used five when I made my noodles and the dough was too sticky, so I added flour one tablespoon at a time and three tablespoons later I reached the consistency that I wanted… The dough may be a little sticky. You will then drop the dough by small spoonfuls into boiling water. The noodles will sink first and then rise to the top. I got all the noodles into the pot and then timed them for 7 to 8 minutes… They really expand in size. Mom always put the whole noodles into the soup… but I usually cut them into a little smaller pieces and they tend to absorbs the flavor and also become more tender…

when I say drop I mean you scoop a small amount of dough on the spoon and then dip spoon into boiling water and it will usually fall off the spoon… if not just tap the spoon against the side of the pot while it is over the water and it should release… My high school students did a great job of noodle making… so they will be very helpful in the process… If you ever need a hand in making these noodles…let me know…

    If you put the spoon into the boiling water first and then pick up the dough, the noodles will slip right off
