If you’re a soup lover like me, try making your own delicious homemade egg noodles to add to your next soup recipe. They are super easy to make (I promise!) and you probably have all the ingredients you’ll need! And be sure to check out my Chicken Noodle Soup recipe below as well, a family favorite.
Homemade Egg Noodles for Soup
(Adapted from Food.com)
2 cups all-purpose Flour
3 egg yolks
1 egg (with yolk)
2 teaspoons salt
1/4-1/2 cups water
Mix salt and flour in a large mixing bowl. Make a small well in the mixture with your fist and place eggs in well. Mix with your hands. Add in about 1 teaspoon at a time of the water until you can knead a dough. Separate dough in fourths. Roll out on a well floured surface to desired thickness and use a pizza cutter to cut noodle strips. (Note: I like thick noodles like the ones pictured, but you can go thinner based on your preference). Cook noodles in boiling water for about 12 minutes or until cooked through and then drain. Add noodles to your favorite soup recipe!
I started making these noodles when one I was in the mood for soup and couldn’t locate the Reames Frozen Egg Noodles that I usually purchase. And these homemade noodles taste even better! My family loves chicken noodle soup; and if you use leftover chopped chicken or shredded rotisserie chicken, it can be a really simple and comforting meal to whip up. One ingredient that I believe makes a great soup is Herbes de Provence, which is a mixture of dried lavender, thyme, sage, and rosemary. I also use it on my turkey at Thanksgiving. Below you’ll find my chicken or turkey noodle soup recipe.
