These homemade egg noodles have such a wonderful rich flavor. They are so much better than store-bought and they aren’t hard to make. I dare you to make them just once. You’ll never go back!


Units Scale
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg, plus 3 egg yolks
  • Enough water to make a dough and form a ball, about 6 tablespoons


  1. Mix the dough.  Add the flour and salt to a large bowl and whisk together to combine.  Make a well in the center of the flour.  Add the water and eggs to the well.  Mix with a wooden spoon or spatula until the mixture forms a slightly sticky ball.  Place the dough ball onto a well floured surface and knead the ball a couple of times until it’s no longer sticky.
  2. Roll and cut the noodles.  Using a floured rolling pin, roll the dough out into a thickness of 1/8 inch.  You can roll it into a rectangle or round, it doesn’t really matter.  It’s important to roll the dough thin, because the egg noodles will puff up and become thick when they are cooked.  Using a sharp knife or pizza cutter, (the pizza cutter works great), cut the dough in half, down the center.  Starting at one side of the dough, cut strips of dough about 4 to 5 inches long…this is totally up to you as to how long you want your noodles.  My mother always made really long noodles.  I prefer shorter noodles myself.  See pictures above.  Once the noodles are cut, make sure they’re dusted with flour and not touching.  Leave the noodles on a lightly floured surface and allow them to dry while you prepare the your favorite chicken or roast recipe.
  3. Drop the noodles in boiling broth and turn the heat down to medium-low. Cover and cook until the noodles are fork tender, about 15 to 20 minutes.
