Homemade Egg Noodles

Homemade Egg Noodles – Delicious & Easy

These Homemade Egg Noodles are one of our family’s best recipes ever! Definitely a timeless, classic, method for making delicious noodles.


Just like my Mother and Grandmothers used to make.

I love it, my family loves it, and we hope you do too! Very simple. Light, and tasty! Great recipe!

I do use a pizza cutter when I make them, just because it’s easier. I also use the yellow food color because folks seem to think they’re twice as good.
