If you're looking for a delicious yet simple accompaniment to a meal try this Lorraine noodles recipe. Also known as nouilles au beurre, or buttered noodles, this dish is elevated from the modest, homemade noodle by browning the finished product under a broiler until the surface turns to a slightly dried, pale gold. The result is a surprisingly intricate blend of flavor and texture perfect for serving with saucy stews and gravy-laden roasts.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
Yield: 4 to 6 servings
- 4 eggs
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- Scant 1 tablespoon cornmeal
Lightly beat the eggs together and then work them into the flour to make a smooth dough. Roll out the dough onto a very lightly floured surface and cut it into very thin strips. Sprinkle the noodles with a light dusting of cornmeal.
Preheat a broiler to high and bring a pot of water to boiling. Salt the water and cook the noodles for 1 minute to 90 seconds, until they are cooked through and just tender, not overly soft.
Drain the noodles, and place them in a buttered, ovenproof or pan. Broil the Lorraine noodles for 3 to 4 minutes, until they turn light brown on top. Serve the cooked noodles immediately.
