Homemade Egg Noodles


When you have a recipe this easy and good you just have to share!



My Mom was the quintessential homemaker.  She made all of 

her pastries from scratch. Her homemade bread was a piece

of heaven- her cakes, pies and noodles a tradition. Not only is it

rewarding to make these goodies from scratch, it is also a money

saver.









Making homemade noodles is actually easy, it is more of a time

commitment.  Mom didn't use a pasta maker, she rolled them

out and sliced each and every noodle by hand.  Some were

plump (almost like a mini dumpling-others long and thin.)  




Ingredients:

2 eggs
1/4 cup water
1/4 tsp. salt
2 cups flour (or until dough is firm, but not dry)

Directions:

Beat 2 eggs in Kitchen Aid mixer with wire whip attachment until 

frothy, add water and salt.


Remove wire whip attachment and replace with dough hook.

Slowly add 2 cups of flour to mixing bowl, blending well after

each addition.  If dough seems to be too sticky to handle add 

additional flour in 1/4 cup increments.

On a floured surface, with a rolling pin, roll dough into a 12 x 14 

rectangle.

Flour top of dough and then roll the dough  (similar to a jelly roll)

Slice dough into desired thickness.



Let air dry for  several hours.  Boil for 20 to 30 minutes and serve

with your favorite sauce, or add to your favorite casserole or

soup!

  2. Those look fabulous, Jemma! Homemade pasta is so hearty, too, that a little goes a very long way.
    I love that your recipe uses a mixer. So many recipes for homemade pasta call for mixing it all by hand.

  12. Oh, I would love to make these! We make a pastry...simple pie crust recipe...roll it out and cut it into strips, rub with melted butter, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar and bake. Makes a fun snack or dessert and I can make a few sugar free with Truvia. Hugs!
