Buttered Poppy Seed Noodles

Mom's delicious fried noodles are absolute comfort food. Mom would roll out the dough, and we kids got to cut the long noodles and hang them up to dry. Mom served them with other entrees, too.—Shirley Joan Helfenbein, Lapeer, Michigan

    I made these the way my mom always did. Boiled the noodles in chicken broth, ditched the white onion and parsely, tripled the green onion and added about 1 cup of shredded carrots. Only needs about 1 tablespoon of poppyseeds. Two is A LOT!
