My grandma used to tell me about making her own noodles all the time when I was younger. She’d tell me about how she’d cut them into strips, and lay them over chairs to let them dry.
I always like to make things from scratch, but most of the time the convenience of buying things like noodles pre-made wins. I have a recipe that I like to use on special occasions, or when I’m making my chicken noodle soup from scratch, for super easy homemade noodles.
They require just a few ingredients, and don’t require any chairs to help them dry! I make these fresh, and use them immediately. Many people have frozen the noodles for future use, but I’ve never tried it. If you have experience in that, feel free to share your tips with other readers in the comments!
Rather than buy store bought, these are my go-to noodles. These are delicious and have an excellent flavor. They absorb the liquid they’re cooking in, so it’s best to cook them in something with flavor, like chicken broth, etc. These have the consistency of dumplings, and make every recipe something special!
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons milk
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup all purpose flour

- Once fully combined, form the dough into a ball.
- Flour a flat surface, and roll the dough out.

- Cut the strips into your desired length.
- Drop them directly into the soup you are making, or into boiling water.
