Sure you could use frozen egg noodles. I sometimes do and prefer Reames Homemade Egg Noodles.
But if you really want to wow your family or company, try making some from scratch. Although it takes a while for them to dry, they are really quite simple to make. And so very delicious.
Ingredients Needed to Make Homemade Egg Noodles
- all-purpose flour
- whole milk
Instructions on Making this Recipe
In small bowl, combine all-purpose flour and salt. Using a blending fork or your fingers, stir in bits of butter.
Add eggs and egg yolk together with milk. Mix together with fork until it comes together in a ball.
Use your hands to knead dough 3-5 minutes until smooth. Your dough should come together and be smooth and elastic. Let the dough rest for about 10 minutes.
On a floured surface, roll out dough with a rolling pin to 1/4 – 1/8″ thick. Be sure to have plenty of flour on the bottom and top of the dough to help prevent sticking.
Use a pasta cutter to cut your noodles. Or try an old method my mom taught me:
Loosely roll the dough beginning with one long edge and working up (like for a cinnamon roll.)
Then using a sharp knife slice the roll into 1/2″ widths.
Unroll each slice and then either slice or pull off pieces to desired lengths of noodles. Spread out on a floured surface so that slices do not touch each other.
Allow noodles to air dry for 2-3 hours. At that point they will be ready to cook or you can put them in a plastic bag and freeze for later use.
When ready to prepare, cook in a pot of boiling broth for 10-12 minutes until tender. Use the extra flour with the noodles, which will help thicken the gravy. This recipe will serve 6-8 people.
I hope you will try making this recipe for homemade noodles. I think you will really enjoy the process and it will give you a great sense of achievement in the kitchen. Which is always nice.
