Grandma’s Homemade Egg Noodles

If you’ve never made homemade egg noodles you’re in for a treat! They are sooo much better than store bought.

Homemade Egg Noodles

I remember my grandmother making noodles like this when I visited her in Alabama many moons ago.

The first time I made them my dad said they reminded him of his mom’s homemade noodles and were just as good as hers–the best compliment ever!

This recipe makes a lot of noodles, too.

To roll the dough and cut into strips, I have an inexpensive pasta roller machine from Amazon–makes perfectly thin (or thick) noodles and has a fettuccine attachment that cuts the noodles into perfect width! (Click Here!)

If you are using a pasta rolling appliance, make sure the dough is not sticky AT ALL. It will be difficult to separate into individual noodles if it is at all sticky.

It is not so crucial if you are rolling out and cutting by hand/pizza cutter, etc.

Either way, they are wonderful, light, and tasty! Great recipe!

(These are perfect for this Turkey Noodle Soup Recipe!)

I make a big batch and freeze several bags of the dried strips for cooking later.

Grandma's Homemade Egg Noodles
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 whole egg
  • 3 tablespoons cold water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups flour
  1. Beat the egg yolks with the whole egg until very light. Beat in the salt and water.
  2. Stir in the flour and work with hands until blended. Divide the dough into 2 equal parts.
  3. Roll out each part as thin as possible on a lightly floured board. Let stand until partially dry (like chamois skin), at least 1 hour, then roll up like a jelly roll and cut into strips of any desired width.
  4. Shake out the strips and allow them to finish drying before using or storing them.
  5. Enjoy!
