Homemade Noodles

I have a great recipe for Crockpot Chicken and Noodles that is easy and yummy.  I'm fully prepared to post that recipe, but first I feel compelled to share this one: Homemade Noodles.  They are not hard to make, they are cheap, and they are so yummy, you might be rendered speechless upon eating them.

Homemade Noodles:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 egg yolks
1 whole egg
1/3 cup water
1 tsp vegetable oil

Stir together 1 3/4 cups of flour and the salt.  Make a well in the center of the mixture.
In another bowl, beat the yolks and egg with the water and oil.  Add it to the dry mixture and mix well.
Knead the dough on a floured surface, using the remaining 1/4 cup of flour.  Keep kneading for about 10 minutes or until your hands crumble into the dough from exhaustion.  Cover the dough and let it rest for 10 minutes.
Cut the dough into four pieces.
Take each section and roll them out on a floured surface, until they are thin and about 12 inches wide.  Set the rolled dough out to rest for another 20 minutes, uncovered.
Once they've rested, cut them into strips.  I use a pizza cutter and just whip through them, but you could always use the jelly-roll method of rolling them up and cutting them as wide as you'd like.
Once that's done, pull the noodles apart and let them sit for several hours.  Overnight is great, but six hours does just fine for me.  I usually put them on a wire rack to dry, which works the best, but today they've rested on wax paper.  I flipped them over after about three hours to let the other side dry.
Next week, I'll show you an easy Chicken Noodles to make with these... it's so yummy!

  4. usually I just throw my noodle dough into boiling chicken broth and turn it into chicken noodle soup. They always get super huge though, I wonder if drying them first would keep them a bit smaller.

    1. These do plump up a bit in the broth, but they don't get super big... I'm not sure if it's the drying or not, but these noodles are so good!

    1. It isn't as much work as I thought it would be and the taste and savings are totally worth it. If you try them, let me know how they turn out!

  6. I LOVE homemade egg noodles! I started making them when I moved away from Missouri to Georgia and they didn't have the frozen ones I had grown up using. Thank goodness for my red & white Betty Crocker cookbook!!

  8. I am new at making homemade noodle. How do you store them and how long do they last?

    1. Once the noodles are completely dry, put them in an airtight bag or container and they'll keep in the fridge for a few days and in the freezer for six months. I always mean to make a double batch of these for freezing, but never remember!
