Easy Egg Noodles

Easy Egg Noodles – My simple homemade egg noodle recipe (like Reames) is sure to become a family favorite! These noodles are my family’s favorite. They often want them for their birthdays and we have had them for many parties, especially Christmas.

I’m so excited to finally find this recipe on the blog. I have been making these noodles for

Easy Egg Noodles

, now over 26 years. They are one of the first things I tried to make at home. They turned out great the first time!

Easy 15 Minute Yaki Udon (stir Fried Udon Noodles)

You really can make this easy homemade egg noodle recipe without any special equipment. I’ve never had a pasta machine, so I make them by hand. When I first started making them I used a tall glass as a rolling pin. I just floured the glass the same way you would a rolling pin. I don’t have a pasta drying rack, so I just lay them out on the counter on paper towels to dry.

They are easy and very cheap to make (especially when you compare the cost to Reames). You can use these noodles in any recipe that calls for egg noodles, making them very versatile. They can be made thick, thin, wide or narrow depending on how you use them. Or simply because you prefer them one way or another.

They dry out and cook faster if they are thin. But they are very tasty no matter how you make them. They take up a lot of space when they dry.

Mix the flour and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the center of the flour; add the egg, egg yolks and water, then mix until just combined. Pour the flour mixture onto the floured counter and form a ball of dough. If the dough is too sticky, mix in enough extra flour to make the dough easier to handle. If the dough is too dry, mix in enough water to make the dough easier to handle. Divide the ball of dough into 4 equal parts.

Roll a quarter of the dough into a rectangle on a floured surface. Roll the dough as thin as 1/16 inch or as thick as 1/8 inch. Fold smoothly lengthwise into thirds. Using a sharp knife cut crosswise into 1/8- to 1/2-inch-wide strips, as desired. Dry pasta by placing noodles in a single layer on paper towels for at least 30 minutes and up to 3 hours.

Tear or cut the pasta into smaller pieces. Bring a large pot of water to a boil, add the noodles and turn down to medium heat when it boils again; bake 20-30 minutes or until desired doneness. Mix with your favorite sauce. The thicker the noodles, the longer it will take to cook. You can also add them to your favorite soup and cook them as you would with water.

We use an egg separator like this. A family friend gave it to me about 22 years ago. Before, I would crack the egg as evenly as possible and let as much of the egg white fall out as possible. Then pour the yolk into the other half of the egg shell and go back and forth until you only have the yolk left. For visual help, watch Jamie Oliver’s short video.

Roll the dough a little at a time by rolling a little and then turning the dough over and rolling some more. Add more flour as needed to keep the dough from sticking. Do not press too hard with the rolling pin or the dough will be more likely to stick.

Homemade Egg Noodles

Be patient. Although these noodles turned out great the first time I made them, they got easier to make the more I made them. I’ve learned little tricks that work for me and you will too!

I mix my flour, eggs and water in a large bowl and then put it on the counter. You can mix it right there on the counter. I’ve seen chefs on cooking shows do it this way.

Be sure to flour the work surface, the rolling pin, the knife you use to cut the dough, and your hands.

Cover the remaining dough with a clean towel, paper towel, or plastic wrap as you work each portion.

Try making thin and wide egg noodles, or thicker and thinner egg noodles to see which you like best.

I always cut the noodles into 2-3 inch pieces. They can be left for a long time but I have never made them like this. When I started making these noodles there was no internet and so I interpreted the recipe to cut them into smaller pieces. It never occurred to me to leave the noodles long.

These are tender noodles like Reames and not hard like the egg noodles that come in a bag in the regular pasta aisle.

These noodles can be cooked into soups, but they need to be fully cooked before using them in a casserole or mixing them into a sauce.

Homemade German Spaetzle Recipe (german Egg Noodles)

My mother-in-law used to talk about how her mother made the most delicious noodles because hers were so thin. I did mine that way for many years. Lee then shared with me that he actually likes them thicker. So I started making them thicker. I like it both ways. I’ve thought about getting a pasta machine but I really like rolling out the dough and cutting the noodles by hand.

Our simple homemade egg noodle recipe is perfect to use in homemade chicken noodle soup or topped with your favorite sauce. They can also be cooked in beef broth or chicken broth for an easy dish.

I use these noodles to make chicken and noodles and beef and noodles. The beef and noodles recipe in the link calls for Reames Noodles because I wanted it to be easy. You can use fresh or frozen noodles in any of these recipes.

Homemade egg noodles (like Reames) combine flour, salt, eggs and water. That’s it, 4 ingredients including water. This comfort food is so easy to make!

A simple old recipe for making egg noodles. Only 4 ingredients and no blender or machine needed to make yours at home! The recipe includes an explanatory video!

I’m well aware that it’s not particularly easy to find many staples at the grocery store right now. Bread, milk and pasta are scarce. Just like toilet paper. Life is a little crazy, to say the least.

I’ve been trying to share recipes you can make when you can’t find what you need at the grocery store. Earlier this week I shared my bread recipe (followed by yesterday’s toast recipe, thanks to everyone who had a good sense of humor on April Fool’s Day 😉). I’m working on a recipe for flourless cookies and a yeastless bread as I know these ingredients can be scarce.* Or expensive, my dad paid over $6 for a 3 pack of yeast back in the day this week!

That’s where today’s egg noodle recipe comes into play. I know pasta can be hard to find right now, and traditional pasta can be hard to make and often requires a machine. Today I’m going to show you how to make your own egg noodles, perfect for using in any recipe that calls for them, or for boiling and enjoying with butter or your favorite sauce. No machine required.

No mixer or machine needed today. Simply mix flour, salt, eggs and a splash of water and use a fork to work the ingredients together until you get a smooth, sticky ball of dough. Add more flour as needed until the dough is sticky to the touch but not too sticky. Knead with your hands on a well-floured surface for 5-10 minutes, until the dough is smooth and elastic. Let it rest, roll it up, slice it and you’re done.

Egg noodles are versatile. My mom usually throws them into her homemade chicken noodle soup (recipe coming soon…ish!) and they can also be used with beef stroganoff or any other recipe that calls for egg noodles. I like to cook them, drain them, and then toss them with butter, black pepper, and Parmesan cheese. It’s a good side dish!

They can be used immediately after cutting or they can be dried and saved for later use (more on that below).

To cook egg noodles, drop them into a pot of boiling, well-salted water. Cook until they are tender (they should still be a little chewy after cooking). How long the noodles take to cook depends on how thick they are and how long they are cooked
