How are egg noodles made?
You truly only need a few inexpensive ingredients and in just a few steps you can make egg noodles. If you can roll out dough and cut it, you can seriously make these!
Ingredients for homemade egg noodles recipe:
- all-purpose flour
- Canola or olive oil
How to make homemade egg noodles:
There are a few steps to this but they are all very simple. You will be making these like a pro in no time at all!
First, stir together flour and salt in a medium bowl.
Make a “well” or depression in the center of your flour mixture.
Next, pour eggs, milk and oil into the center. Mix well.
Dough will be sticky, and it will smooth out while you knead.
Lightly sprinkle flour onto a clean counter or tabletop surface.
Knead dough for 5 minutes.
Roll dough out into a large rectangle, making it as thin as you can-almost translucent is ideal if you have the arm muscles for it.
Let noodles rest for 30 minutes, covered, to allow gluten to relax.
How do you cut homemade egg noodles?
Cut noodles using a sharp knife, or my favorite-a pizza cutter. Make them any size you like, for general purpose I make mine about ½” wide by 3” long.
How to cook egg noodles:
Drop noodles into boiling water and cook for 12-14 minutes. The noodles will float to the top and will be fork tender when they are ready.
Scoop the noodles out with a slotted spoon to drain. Easy!
You can also mix these in with your favorite recipe such as chicken noodle soup or casseroles. We love the noodles in Crockpot Chicken Noodle Soup.
How to Freeze your Homemade Egg Noodles:
Noodles can be prepared ahead of time and you can actually freeze them. Allow them to dry on counter for 2 hours, flip, and dry another hour.
Then place them in a freezer safe zippered bag. Label the bag with the date using a Sharpie.
You can store them up to 2 – 3 months in the freezer.
You will cook them just like you would when they are fresh – place in boiling water for 15 minutes. Or toss them into your favorite recipe like my Crockpot Chicken Noodle Soup.
