Five Minute Homemade Egg Noodle Recipe
Making your own egg noodles for Homemade Chicken Soup is easier then you think. If you have five minutes and a rolling pin you are half way there!
My family absolutely loves this recipe!. I have put together an easy to follow how to post to help you if this is your first time making noodles.
Start by whisking together the 2 eggs, 2 tbsp milk, 1/2 tsp salt and pinch of pepper
Depending on the day and the size of your eggs, it will take between 1 1/2 and 2 cups of flour to make your dough. I start by adding about 1 1/4 cups of flour
This is what mine looked like with 1 1/4 cup flour mixed in…too sticky, I added about 1/2 cup more and continued mixing with a fork.
This is what you want the dough to look like before you start to knead it into a ball. just a little sticky with some loose flour around the edges and bottom. I only used 1 3/4 cup of flour to get to this point.
Using your hand knead the dough (right in the bowl you mixed in) until all the flour is incorporated and it becomes a ball of sorts.
It is perfectly normal for your hands to look like this after doing this job. If the dough seems excessively sticky you can add a little more flour.
Plop your dough out onto a generously floured surface and roll it out.
If the dough starts to stick to your surface, carefully lift it up like so and slide a little more four under it.
Your dough should be this thin when you are done rolling it out.
Use a pizza cutter to cut dough into noodles. I like mine between 1/4 and 1/2 inch wide.
Carefully pick up noodles in small batches, so they will not all smash together, and gently place them into your boiling soup.
The noodles will float to the top while they are cooking. Allow them to cook for 10-15 minutes and then serve!
Yummy! You did it!!!
