Prep Time 1 hr 30 mins


Rolled-Up Noodles

  • 2 1/2 cups of flour
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk I used 2%


  • 1/3 cup bacon drippings I chose to use melted butter instead
  • 1 1/2 lbs on farmer sausage
  • 8-10 fresh medium potatoes cut into 8 pieces each
  • 2 medium onions diced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley

Schmaundt Fat (cream gravy)

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • salt and pepper to taste


To make the rolled-up noodles:

  • Stir the eggs, milk, and salt into the flour; knead until the dough comes together and is smooth
  • Cover and let rest for 30 min.
  • Sprinkle flour over a large surface and roll out the dough until it is very thin.
  • The dough should be see through and approximately 24 x 16".
  • Spread the bacon drippings or melted butter all over the dough.
  • From the long side start rolling your dough up tightly.Cut the dough into 3 sections, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to use.

To assemble your meal:

  • Cut up the farmer sausage into bite size pieces.
  • Place the meat in the bottom of a large pot that has a lid.
  • Add in the potatoes and onions.
  • Sprinkle with salt and peppers and parsley.
  • Put in enough water to cover the meat.
  • Bring to a boil then let simmer for 30 min. with the lid on the pot.
  • After the meat and potatoes have simmered for 30 min its time to add in your noodles.
  • Cut your noodle logs into 1/4" coils. Place your noodles on top of the meat and veggies.
  • Quickly replace the lid and let the noodles steam for another 45 min.
  • If you want softer noodles you can add a little extra water at this time.
  • Let simmer until most of the liquid is absorbed and your farmer sausage is starting to sizzle in the pot.
  • Remove and serve with hot schmaundt fat/ Cream Gravy.
