“Creamy Decadent Homemade Noodles, a North Dakota Favorite! My Husband's Grandmother taught me how to make these and now we eat them at least once a week. Caution: These are NOT low-fat, low-carb, or low-cholesterol!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix flour, salt, egg and milk until dough comes together. Do not overmix, do not knead. When the dough loosely forms a ball, roll it out on the countertop, using lots of flour so it doesn't stick. Roll to 1/4 inch thickness with a rolling pin, then cut into strips 1x4 inches with a pizza cutter.
  2. Heat a 13x9 electric skillet to 350 degrees, melt the butter and pour in cream.
  3. Add the noodles to the butter cream mixture quickly, layering them, if needed. Cover and cook for 15 minutes or "until you can smell them" as Grandma says. I think you can smell them as soon as the butter melts, so I just cook them for 15 minutes. Do not lift cover. After 15 minutes, turn off heat. The cream will have absorbed and the noodles will be crispy on the bottom and creamy on the top. Sprinkle with a little salt and enjoy or you can eat them with a little jelly or maple syrup.
