Milk or Potato Noodles

Recipe History:
Noodles have been part of various cuisines and cultures around the world for centuries. They are a versatile dish that can be made in many different ways and paired with a variety of ingredients. In this recipe, we will explore a unique twist on traditional noodles by incorporating either milk or potatoes into the dish.

Fun Facts:
- Noodles are believed to have originated in China over 4,000 years ago.
- The world's oldest known noodle was found in China and is estimated to be around 4,000 years old.
- In many Asian cultures, noodles symbolize longevity and are often served during birthdays and other celebratory occasions.
- Potatoes were first introduced to Europe in the late 16th century and quickly became a staple food due to their ability to grow in various climates.

Now, let's dive into the recipe for Milk or Potato Noodles:

- 7-8 medium-sized potatoes (or 2 cups of milk)
- 2 eggs
- Salt to taste
- All-purpose flour (enough to make a dough)
- Butter
- Bread crumbs

1. If using potatoes, boil them in their jackets until cooked through. Once cooked, peel them and let them stand for several hours to dry.
2. Grate the boiled potatoes (or skip this step if using milk) and transfer them to a mixing bowl.
3. Add two eggs, salt, and enough flour to make a dough that is thick enough to roll. Start with adding 1 cup of flour and gradually add more if needed.
4. Mix the ingredients together until well combined and the dough comes together.
5. Dust a clean surface with flour and roll the dough into long, round noodles that are as thick as two pencils.
6. Cut the noodles to the length of a baking pan.
7. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
8. Butter the baking pan and lay the noodles next to each other in the pan.
9. Pour milk over the noodles. If using potatoes, skip this step and proceed to the next.
10. Place lumps of butter on top of the noodles and milk.
11. Bake the noodles in the preheated oven for approximately 15 minutes or until they turn golden brown.
12. While the noodles are baking, prepare the bread crumbs. In a separate pan, melt butter and add the bread crumbs. Stir continuously until the bread crumbs turn golden brown. Set aside.
13. Once the noodles are ready, remove them from the oven and immediately garnish with the browned bread crumbs.
14. Serve the Milk or Potato Noodles immediately, ideally accompanied by freshly baked bread.

1. For a savory twist, you can add cooked bacon or ham to the noodle mixture before baking. This will add depth and richness to the dish.
2. If you prefer a cheesy flavor, sprinkle grated cheese on top of the noodles before baking. The cheese will melt and create a deliciously gooey topping.
3. To make the dish heartier, you can add cooked vegetables such as peas, carrots, or corn to the noodle mixture before baking. This will add extra nutrition and texture.
