Puffy Cheese Noodles, a festive foods rewind

During the next few days, I will share some delicious recipes that are perfect for the upcoming holiday gatherings that may occur at your home with family and friends. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do! 

(PS, a batch of these easy noodles makes a great gift for the food lover on your list.)

This recipe originally shared November 2, 2008.


Puffy Cheese Noodles
serves 2 to 3

1 egg
1 T milk

3/4 c flour
1/4 c Parmesan cheese
1 t baking powder
1/4 t saltCombine the dry ingredients in a small bowl, combine the egg and milk in another. Beat the egg and milk together until well mixed. Dump the dry ingredients into the wet, use a fork and combine well. This is a stiff dough against the fork. Do not add any additional liquid. You may need to use your hands to work all the dry ingredients into the dough.

Turn the dough out onto a floured surface. Knead 10 - 12 times. Shape it into a disk shape. This step will make the dough easier to roll out.

Roll the dough out into a (roughly) 12X12 shape. This size keeps the thickness of the noodle correct. Sprinkle with a bit more flour and rub gently over the surface. This is an important step; although the dough feels stiff, it has a lot of moisture.



Roll the dough up like a jelly roll and cut into 1/4 inch slices.

Unroll onto a clean towel and let dry.
You can cook them after drying or break in half for easy storage and freeze.



When ready to cook, bring a large pan of water to boil, add 1 T salt to the water. Boil uncovered for 8 - 10 minutes. Drain and serve.

You can multiply the recipe, just remember to take one recipe portion to roll at a time. That way the thickness will be correct.



These are simple and simply good. But to dress them up a bit, you might want to try..........


Garlic and brown butter sauce

2 T butter
1 clove garlic minced
1/4 c fresh minced parsley
additional Parmesan cheese

Saute the garlic in 1 T of the butter until golden and soft. Remove from pan and set aside. Add remaining butter and gently brown the butter over a low heat. Remove pan from heat, return the sauteed garlic (and with the butter it was sauteed in) and the parsley. Combine and toss with the drained noodles. Sprinkle with additional cheese and serve.
