"The easiest noodle recipe I know. Tasty too. Great for chicken and noodles. There is nothing quite like homemade. Time includes 2 hours of drying time."
Serving Size: 1 (208 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 1
"This is our family's homemade noodle recipe as well and it is excellent. We make it according to these serving sizes: 1 egg for every two people, 2 tbsp milk and 1 cup of flour per egg. So for six people you would need 3 eggs, 6 tbsp milk, and 3 cups of flour (we don't usually measure the amount of salt, just a "dash"). However we usually go a little lighter on the flour since you use a lot when rolling out the dough. Also, we cut the dough into noodles while it lays flat on the counter top. Everyone loves these noodles, my aunt has made them with roast every Sunday for most of my life! Thank you!"
"This is a brilliant recipe! Very easy to put together. i tried rolling it by hand and it was sticky and impossible but once I used my pasta maker it was a breeze. My 2 year old had great fun making this with me. A lovely meal and a lovely family memory! ETA: to prevent having a sticky mess it is ESSENTIAL to follow step 5 and let the pasta sheets dry out a bit before cutting into strips - even if you use a pasta maker!"
"I love this recipe, it's so easy and good! I don't dry them but put the noodles right in the broth of whatever I'm making at the time. Since I have a mess going anyway I usually make more and freeze on a floured cookie sheet then bag in freezer bags. So easy and quick (who doesn't have flour & eggs on hand, I can make these quicker than running to the store for Reames). I've made this recipe several times, freezes well, never a failure. I roll out and use my pizza cutter to slice (a tip from another post). Thanks Quixoposto for a wonderful recipe!"
"As the youngest of 32 in my generation of the family, it was quite an honor to be invited to Grandma and Grandpa's for Sunday dinner. I remember them calling on Saturday to ask how many were going to be there so Grandpa knew how many eggs to make. When I was about 9 my grandfather taught me to make his noodles. I quickly forgot most of it and when he died a few years later I was left wondering how I would find the recipe again. This is it!! Beyond a doubt the best noodles on earth, though I might be biased! ;) As a note, I add just a little garlic powder to my dough. It just punches up the flavor a little (one of my husband complaints about homemade noodles) Thank you for helping me reconnect!!"
"I've never made noodles before and these turned out really good. I wasn't sure what to do after I cut them. I figured I was supposed to unroll them, but they didn't want to unroll. So I kind of flattened them out a bit. I think next time I'll roll them out and use the pizza slicer to cut. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe. These were really fun to make."
"Awesome! I have made noodles sporadically over the years and this is by far the best! Not only are the noodles tasty...the dough rolls out beautifully from the get-go. I did let the dough rest on the counter rolled out for 20 minutes before cutting, but used them promptly in my soup following that (no drying time) and they were dynamite. I might even be able to remember the recipe, but no worries, I definitely have this one saved!"
"This is exactly how I make my noodles. I boil them and then add them to my chicken broth and chicken pieces and place them in a crock pot for a couple hours to thicken up. They are delicious, my great aunt taught me how to make these."
"Spot on recipe, I have made mine from scratch for years but never measured the amounts, it was helpful that was done for me and I don't dry my noodles. I can never seem to tell the difference so they go right into the boiling chicken stock. Yumm-O"
"So easy! Used my mixer and put them in soup."
"Excellent Recipe. If you prefer thicker noodles, you will need to double this recipe for approximately 4 hearty servings. We use chicken broth to cook them in. This makes it like my grandmother always made. This recipe has assisted us in making homemade noodles for a fourth generation (there was no original recipe, only in minds of those of past generations). Do not be afraid to add chicken, comes out wonderfully."
"Really tasty and very easy. I found the noodles to be very fragile after the 2 hours drying time though, and ended up with a lot of little noodle pieces rather than nice long noodles. I added them to chicken soup and it tasted great."
"Great recipe! This was the first time I made edible homemade noodles! To add some spice I added two small finely chopped garlic cloves before adding the flour. I served the noodles to a vegetable dish, which gave the whole meal an interesting touch."
"Loved this recipe!!!"
"these are straight from my childhood. my mom used to make these and use them in chicken soup. the recipe was lost, and i've been looking for 20 years. thank you thank you thank you!"
"Recommended! This is the first time I have tried to make homemade noodles and I couldn't be happier. This recipe is a must try! It is very easy and you don't need to be a pro. I made these to go under the tomato based Chicken Marsala recipe on Zaar. These were so easy and my family felt so special getting served homemade noodles. Honestly, these are so easy and so delicious (tossed w/butter, dash of salt and parsley) that I don't think I will ever buy packaged noodles again. The texture of these are perfect! I only wish I had made these sooner. Oh, the portion recommendations by MommyMakes are perfect. Also, I recommend rolling them out unless you have a steady hand and expert cutting skills. I tried to freehand but rolling was easier and gave me more uniform noodles."
"An excellent recipe! I used my pasta maker so making them was a breeze! thanks"
