Homemade egg noodles

I’ve heard nothing but great things about homemade noodles, but, aside from spaetzle, had never made them. But they’re really easy and not very time consuming! Egg noodles were a breeze and I plan to make them again soon. I ate them with a chicken stew that I should be posting soon. :)

Homemade egg noodles
from Stolen Moments

2 c. flour
1 t. salt
2 eggs
1 egg yolk
2 T. cold water + 1-2 T. more

Heap the flour in a shallow bowl or on a cutting board; sprinkle salt over flour. Make a well in the middle of the flour. In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, egg yolk, and 2 T. water. Pour the eggs in the middle of the flour well and carefully cut in flour, starting with the outside edges.

Use your hands to form the dough into a ball and knead 10-15 times. Add water by the teaspoon if absolutely necessary, but you want a stiff dough- not tacky.  Roll out on a lightly floured surface until desired thickness- I made mine thick, between 1/4 and 3/8 inch.

Roll up the dough like rolling a jelly roll. Cut 1/4 inch slices all across the length. Unwind carefully; cut to desired length. Lay out to let dry for at least 20 minutes before boiling.

  1. Making your own pasta is such a fun experience. It is time consuming and messy but the end result always rewards you.
