Tips for Perfect Egg Noodles

Don’t be intimidated by making your own noodles. This recipe is forgiving, unlike finicky pie crusts or delicate pastry dough. You can’t over-mix egg noodles, so feel free to get your hands dirty. If the dough feels too dry, add a splash of water or milk. If it’s too sticky, sprinkle in a little more flour. You really can’t mess them up.

Allow the dough to rest for five minutes before rolling it out and again after rolling. Resting the dough makes it easier to work with and prevents the noodles from shrinking as you cut them. Cover the dough with plastic wrap or a light towel while resting.

Make Ahead, Cooking, Storage, and Freezing Instructions

Make Ahead and Storage Instructions: If you want to prepare your egg noodles in advance, lay them on a pastry drying rack, cooling rack, dry towel, or parchment paper to dry slightly (enough to prevent sticking together). Place them in a ziplock bag or airtight container and refrigerate for a few days or freeze for up to a few months. When you’re ready to use them, cook the noodles in a pot of boiling water or soup.

To Cook: You can cook these easy egg noodles immediately after making them by adding them to a pot of boiling soup, such as our homemade chicken noodle soup. Alternatively, cook them in boiling water until tender and serve them with any recipe that calls for egg noodles. They pair perfectly with Swedish meatballs, Beef Stroganoff, or simply tossed with butter and Parmesan cheese.

To Freeze: If you’d like to freeze the dough, do so before rolling it out. Place the dough in a freezer-safe bag or airtight container. You can also freeze the homemade egg noodles after cutting them but before cooking. When you’re ready to use them, cook the noodles directly from frozen in a pot of boiling water or soup.
