Homemade Noodles And Turkey - Delicious!
I make my Auntie's homemade noodles for this delicious dish. A bit of time to make it, but so darn worth it!
The trick is seasoning your broth well, and adding veggies. Similar to a Turkey Noodle Soup, but with a stew like broth..
Enjoy!..we sure do..
- 3 lb
- fresh turkey breast, poached in salt water , ( about 3 cups) fresh makes a delicious broth
- stalks celery, chopped
- onion , chopped
- 3 - 4 clove
- garlic, minced
- 1 small
- can chicken broth
- 5 Tbsp
- bellview turkey soup starter, or several chicken bullion cubes
- 1/2 tsp
- sage, dried
- salt and pepper to taste
- olive oil for sauteeing vegetables
- eggs, whisked
- approx, 3 c
- flour, extra for rolling
- 1 1/2 tsp
Continue to add flour to the dough as needed... you want it good and dry. Roll the dough until it is very thin.
In a dutch oven, add the turkey breasts and cover with water. I add salt and about 2 tbsp of turkey soup starter. Bring to a boil, lower heat and simmer till no longer pink and fork tender. Remove from the broth, set aside to cool. After cool; shred or chop, set aside
In a stock pot, saute the onion, celery, and garlic in a little olive oil. Add a pinch of salt and a few grinds of pepper.
I added about 3 tablespoons of Turkey soup starter, it gives the stock a wonderful turkey flavor. Taste; once it's flavored well, add a pinch of sage, or whatever other spice you like.
My pot was half full. As long as you have your stock well seasoned, a little water won't hurt.
Bring the stock to a hard rolling boil.
It's important not to add them all at once or they will stick together and you'll wind up with a big glob.
Once all of the noodles are in, stir tenderly to separate but be careful not to break the noodles, and feel free to add more broth if the soup is too thick. The noodles will soak up a lot of the broth, so if you want any broth left by the time you eat it don't be afraid to add more.
Allow everything to simmer for a few minutes, season to taste. There's no real specific time to cook the noodles... tasting is the only way to tell if they're done
