How to Make Homemade Egg Noodles
These are just like the kind my mom used to make. Old fashioned, thick, and chunky, and just perfect.
I use my KitchenAid Mixer for the dough, which means making homemade noodles is even easier. If you don’t have a mixer you can easily knead the dough by hand, just knead the dough for a bit longer.
How to Make Egg Noodle Dough
Egg Noodle dough is easy to make, add the dry ingredients to a mixer bowl and give it a stir. Add the liquids, and stir until a dough forms, then knead for 1 minute. You let the dough rest for a bit, and then it’s on to the trickier part.
Rolling Out Homemade Noodles
You can roll out the dough for homemade noodles with a machine, an attachment for your mixer, or by hand. Just remember you should dust the dough and your tools with flour to keep anything from sticking
- machine: simply following the manufacturer’s directions, divide the dough in 4 pieces-you’ll roll big sheets first and then you can cut by hand or if your machine has blades you can machine cut the noodles as well, dust with flour as needed
- mixer attachment: it’s really the same process divide the dough, use flour to keep it from sticking, roll out in long sheets, I roll on setting one first several times, then roll on setting two, I prefer them at this thickness BUT if you like thinner egg noodles go ahead and move to setting 3 and so on–when you get to the thickness you like dust the sheet with flour, set it aside, a roll the other sheets, I prefer to hand cut the noodles so that’s what I do, you can use the cutting tool on your mixer if you have one
- hand-rolling: dust a clean countertop with a little flour, divide the dough into 4 parts, hand flatten each ball and then roll until it’s your desired thickness, dust the cut noodles with flour and set aside
I like thick chunky noodles but you can roll them out as thin as you like them. Remember they do expand while cooking. And thin noodles cook faster.

- To Roll Out Using a Mixer Attachment: it's really the same process divide the dough, use flour to keep it from sticking, roll out in long sheets, I roll on setting one first several times, then roll on setting two, from here I dust the sheet with flour, set it aside, a roll the other sheets, I prefer to hand cut the noodles so that's what I do, you can use the cutting tool on your mixer if you have one

- Once the noodles are rolled out you can let them dry a bit until you need them OR you can drop them in a simmering soup
- once in a simmering pot of water or soup let them cook a few minutes, and then pull one out and see if it's soft all the way through or if it's still a little hard inside, continue cooking and tasting until you like the way they taste and feel (no longer sort of hard in the middle)

These were so easy and perfect for our Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup this weekend. We even froze a bunch for the next time!
This recipe was perfect. They were out of egg noodles at the store because we had a big snow storm coming. These homemade noodles were fun and tasty!
