Delicious Homemade Noodles
What I love most about these simple homemade noodles is that they’re made using very few ingredients. In fact, this DIY noodle recipe literally only takes THREE simple ingredients.
I know, right? You should have seen the look on my kid’s faces when I told them that. We then looked at a box of noodles from the store for comparison and lost count once we reached 10 added ingredients and items.
It’s no secret that making noodles at home is a great way to get a delicious meal on the table while also creating amazing memories with the kids. This is one simple recipe that you can easily pair with other great entrees or add a bit of butter and salt and eat all on their own.
We’ve made this recipe so many times because it’s fun to spend time together in the kitchen and it’s an easy recipe that the kids can help with, too. (and we all agree that the taste of these noodles beats anything we’ve EVER bought at the store!)
Ingredients Needed for these Homemade Noodles- Only 3 ingredients!
Again, you just need three ingredients to make these noodles!
- 1 cup flour
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs
How to make these simple DIY Egg Noodles at home
Whisk together flour and salt. Create a well in the middle.
Crack eggs into the well. Using a fork, whisk eggs allowing the flour to mix into the dough slowly. Stir until a dough forms. The dough will be sticky.
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead the dough until it becomes smooth.
Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to overnight.
On a floured surface, roll the dough as thin as possible.
Using a pizza cutter, cut noodles into even shapes. As an alternative, lightly flour the top of the dough and then roll the dough loosely like you would a rolled cake. Use a sharp knife to cut in equal pieces. Unroll the noodles to dry.
To dry, place on a wire rack for 2 to 3 hours. Package noodles in an airtight container. Refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 8 months.
How to cook homemade noodles
To cook, bring 3 quarts of water and 1 teaspoon salt to a boil. Slowly add noodles to the boiling water to avoid sticking and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Drain well if adding a sauce.
Topping ideas for homemade noodles
Everyone likes their noodles a different way so there are plenty of ways to eat these noodles. Here are some ideas on how to prepare your noodles once cooked:
- Add sauce to create spaghetti
- Butter and salt only (my kids love it like this)
- Add on fresh parmesan cheese
- Mix into a soup to give it a hearty taste
