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 to Make Homemade Egg Noodles
(See the full post at the bottom of this site.)
- all-purpose flour
- large eggs
- whole milk
Instructions for Making this Recipe
Gather your ingredients so that you have everything close at hand on the counter or table.
Prepare the Dough
In a small bowl, combine the all-purpose flour and salt. Using a blending fork or your fingers, stir in bits of butter.
Add large eggs and egg yolk together with whole 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.
Make the Noodles
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.
To cut, use one of two methods. 1) Use a pasta roller-cutter to cut your noodles.
Or 2) 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.
