Homemade Noodles

These delicious noodles keep very well in the refrigerator. And, there are few things that taste as good as homemade noodles like these eaten plain, with just a few toasted bread crumbs sprinkled on top! —Helen Heiland, Joliet, Illinois
  • Total Time
    Prep: 30 min. + standing Cook: 5 min.
  • Makes
    10 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 to 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon cold water
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

Directions

  • Place 2 cups flour and salt on a pastry board or in a deep bowl. Make a well in a center of the flour; add eggs and water. Gradually mix with hands or a wooden spoon until well blended.
  • Gather into a ball and knead on a floured surface until smooth, about 10 minutes. If necessary, add remaining flour to keep dough from sticking to surface or hands. Divide the dough into thirds. On a lightly floured surface, roll each section into a paper-thin rectangle. Dust top of dough with flour to prevent sticking while rolling. Trim the edges and flour both sides of dough.
  • Roll dough, jelly-roll style. Using a sharp knife, cut 1/4-in. slices. Unroll noodles and allow to dry on paper towels before cooking.
  • To cook, bring salted water to a rapid boil. Add 1 tablespoon oil to the water; drop noodles into water and cook until tender but not soft, about 7-10 minutes.
If Cooking for Two: Freeze uncooked noodles in serving-size portions to enjoy months later. Defrost and cook according to directions above.

    I made these noodles tonight and added them to a batch of turkey soup. The texture of these noodles is PERFECT. They were just the right level of tenderness after adding them to the simmering broth for 10 minutes. I will definitely make these again.

    This is the best noodle recipe I've ever used. It turns out right every time. I wrap the dough and let it rest for 30 minutes before I make the noodles. I use a hand turned pasta machine. I haven't tried rolling them with a rolling pin. My mother made them without a recipe and this is as close to her recipe as I can get. Thank you Helen for sharing your recipe.

    BEFORE I GOT MY PASTA MAKER I ROLLED MY NOODLES AS THIN AS I WANTED THEM THEN I CUT THEM IN STRIPS 2.5 TO 3 INCHES WIDE AND STACKED THEM WITH ENOUGH FLOUR BETWEEN EACH ONE THEN I CUT THEM WITH AN ELECTRIC KNIFE. THAT WORKED REALLY GREAT FOR ME. NOTHING BETTER THAN HOME MADE NOODLES. I ALSO MAKE SPINACH AND WHOLE WHEAT NOODLES.

    I've made this recipe twice now and it turned out great both times. It's easy and tasty. I added an additional 1/2T of water for easier handling each time though. I use farm fresh eggs, so maybe they have a lower moisture content than store-bought.

    Wonderful noodles! Noodle dough is stiff and harder to roll out....that's just the nature of it, and I never especially looked forward to making noodles, though I love homemade ones, because of that. This dough rolled out very easily for me in comparison to times in the past when I've made noodles, and I think it may be because I have a new rolling pin that is quite a bit heavier than my old one. I also use a stocking-like cover on my rolling pin and roll out all doughs I make on a canvas pastry cloth. Also, I prefer my noodles NOT to be paper-thin......I like ones I can sink my teeth into....so if it doesn't matter to you that they're not really thin, don't worry about it!

    <p>The dough is stiff and VERY hard to roll out and make "paper thin". I have never made noodles before either so maybe this is just being a novice.  The noodles were good, but a little thick.  My daughter is picky and asked for another helping!

    Very simple and very delicious. My family loved them when I used them in a simple beef stroganoff. Now all I need to work on is thickness.
