Recipe compliments of the Wendish Heritage Society of Texas.

The Wends are a Slavic sect from Lusaitia, now part of eastern Germany, who immigrated to Central Texas in 1854 to escape persecution by the Prussians. The settlers formed a community near Gidding, TX where they could speak their own language and practice their Lutheran faith.

You can order pre-made noodles online from Weikel's Bakery, 2247 W State Hwy 71 Bypass, LaGrangeTX or at their website weikels.com

All proceeds from sale of noodles goes to support and maintain the society

How to Make WENDISH NOODLES (TRADITIONAL STYLE)

Step-by-Step

  1. TO MAKE NOODLES:

    Beat egg and water together

    Add flour until you get a stiff dough

    Turn out onto floured surface and roll into thin rectangle

    Allow to set until stiff, but not dry

    Cut into noodle strips

    If you have one, you can use a pasta machine
  2. COOKED NOODLES:

    Bring broth to a rolling boil, add the butter and the pinch of nutmeg

    When butter is melted, add noodles

    Cook for 10 minutes

    Add chopped parsley and serve
  3. ALTERNATE COOKING METHOD:

    Cook the noodles for 3-4 minutes as directed above, turn off the heat, cover with foil and a lid and let stand for several minutes before serving (steam and hot broth will finish the cooking)

    This method allows the noodles to absorb more of the broth while steaming
