Ingredients for homemade egg noodles

  • 2  cups flour
  • 3  egg yolks
  • 1  egg
  • 2  teaspoons salt
  • 1⁄4-1⁄2 cup water

Instructions for making homemade egg noodles

Measure flour into bowl; make a well in the center and add egg yolks, whole egg and salt. With hands, thoroughly mix egg into flour.
Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing thoroughly after each addition.
(Add only enough water to form dough into a ball.).
Turn dough onto well-floured board; knead until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes. I usually make on clean surface.
Cover; let rest 10 minutes.
Divide dough into 4 equal parts.
Roll dough, 1 part at a time, into paper-thin rectangle, keeping remaining dough covered.
Roll rectangle around rolling pin; slip out rolling pin.
Cut dough cross-wise into 1/8-inch strips for narrow noodles and 1/4-inch for wide noodles.
Shake out strips and place on towel to dry, about 2 hours.(I often cook right away, first in salted water or stock) then in my dish.
When dry, break dry strips into smaller pieces.
Cook in 3 quarts boiling salted water (1 tablespoon salt) ( I use chicken broth.) 12 to 15 minutes or until tender.
Drain thoroughly.
