Homemade noodles always seem like a daunting task. A time consuming, “only for grandmas, but not for young moms,” overwhelming, daunting task. Then, I remembered that I’m not actually as young as I think I am. And also, they aren’t as scaryΒ as they seem… And get easier (and more comfortable) with each attempt.

What you need:

  • 2 eggs + 1 egg yolk
  • dash of salt
  • 2 Tbsp milk or cream
  • 2 cups flour

What you do:

  • Beat eggs, milk/ cream, and salt together
  • Stir egg mixture in with flour
  • Put mixture on floured board, working in additional flour until stiff
  • Using a rolling pin, roll out mixture until VERY thin
  • Using a thin (and very sharp knife), cut the noodles into thin strips

How to cook:

  • Boil noodles with chicken or beef broth until desired consistency (usually 10-15 minutes).

*Best served on top of a LARGE pile of mashed potatoes. YUM!
