Vintage Brown Buttered Homemade Noodles Recipe (1)

It’s been a while since I pulled out my Great Grandmother’s old recipe box. Recently a recipe recently caught my eye and I had to make it. The recipe card reads “Noodles”. I have always wanted to make homemade noodles but with how inexpensive they are at the store I have never felt the need to do it. I think these noodles would be amazing in my homemade creamy chicken noodle soup recipe, but other than that I don’t think I will ever be making homemade noodles again. Yes, they are easy to make but they are just as easy to buy at the store and in my opinion taste just as good. That is just my own personal opinion, I know all you noodle makers are shaking your head in shame.

This recipe caught my eye because it says that the noodles need to be boiled for 20 minutes… weird. Most other homemade noodle recipes I have seen say they only need boiled a few minutes. I wonder why these need to be boiled longer. And when I turned the card over it had some interesting stuff about frying these noodles up in brown butter??!!?! I feel like my Great Grandma could have been a little more descriptive in the name of this recipe. Maybe like “brown butter noodles”, or something like that. Sheesh! I have never seen a recipe for noodles cooked in butter afterwards. Anyways, It intrigued me and I had to make them. Here is how to do it.

Roll out dough as thin as you can. The thinner the better.

Cut dough into desired shapes. I used a pizza cutter to do this job. It was quick and easy.

My Thoughts…

The noodles themselves were not bad, but frying them up was confusing. I didn’t know how long to cook them for. Was I supposed to cook them until they got crispy? Or cook them just until the brown butter covered the noodles? Anyhow I could have done without that last step of frying them up. I also wonder if these were meant to be served with something specific or just eaten as is?

I really didn’t care for this dish at all, but my husband said that he actually liked it. Have you ever made a dish like this? What did I do wrong? Is my Great Grandmother up in heaven disappointed in my lack of appreciating a good ol’ fashioned brown butter pasta dish? That’s my thoughts, I would love to hear yours. Please share in the comments below if you have ever had a dish like this,or any other thoughts you may have on this homemade pasta.

    This is my grandmother’s recipe also. Although, we never fry them. We boil a chicken ( whole or pieces…. always use leftover turkey day after Thanksgiving). Use store bought broth if we need more. Cook the noodles in that. We eat them over real mashed potatoes. They are the best! I also add frozen petite peas to mine. I just made them this weekend with my 5 yr old grandson. He loves helping.

    My grandmother would make noodles and fry them in butter also, but then would add eggs. I loved it growing up!

    I make something like this from my grandma, I take eggs and flour and mix together and roll out like you say and let dry a hour or two then I flip it and dry some more then roll up into a roll almost like cinnamon roll but thin very thin. Then you cut thin noodles not as thin as spaghetti but thin .I then let dry a little more, then I boil like you said and flour in the water is part of the flavor. And after about twenty minutes I drained off part of the water usually about just under half of it and then I brown the butter and poured it over the noodles and we usually serve this with gravy and a roast and mashed potatoes ( some people like the potatoes over the noodles and some don’t) and I usually have canned cranberries the jellied with this meal also.

    Homemade noodles have been part of our holiday dinners for generations. I always assumed it’s was midwestern thing, though I am second gen Californian. We make the noodles and dry them for a day or two. They are then boiled in a meat broth that corresponds to the entree (I.e. turkey broth at Thanksgiving) The loose flour on the noodles thickens the broth as they cook, and they are then served when the noodles are tender (a la pasta) like a gravy over mashed potatoes. It’s complete and total carb overload but it’s really yummy. I have yet to meet anyone, who is not in my family, who doesn’t give me a weird look when I tell them about them but I’ve indulged in them at every holiday dinner for over half a century, lol.

    I use pre-made gluten free Amish noodles since I’m gluten intolerant. Our Amish restaurants serve them here and they are yummy. I heat one stick of unsalted butter until it’s brown with foam bubbles around edges as in picture above. I also brown chopped kale, garlic, basil, zucchini, and onion in a separate skillet until all is wilted and onions translucent. Then toss noodles, butter, and veggies all together. Sprinkle with a bit a Parmesan and black pepper after plating a portion. Makes a wonderful side to any baked protein.
