I was in the mood for Light Broccoli and Cheese Soup (You have to scroll down quite a bit. In my beginning posts I posted a lot of recipes in each food post. Sorry!) with fresh egg noodles. I used to make them with my roommates my freshman year at BYU. Even then I kept lots of recipes, but I can't find that one anywhere. So I looked online and found My 3 Little Women's version of Homemade Egg Noodles. They are nothing like the dried, pre-packaged kind. This was very easy and tasted just like the ones we used to make. I will NOT lose the recipe this time. (Aren't computers great?) I made half of the recipe since it was a taste-test. Then I diveded it in half and rolled out half of the dough at a time. This photo is of the first half. I rolled out the second half thinner and made the noodles smaller. The noodes do grow a bit when cooked. I think the thinner second half turned out better, but I liked them all.
Elisa wasn't home when I was cooking. When she came home and ate dinner, she couldn't believe I made the noodles. I told her I was hurt that she thought I couldn't make something that good. Then she asked if there was yeast. I told her there wasn't and then she believed I made them. Yep, I am bad with yeast. But these noodles are so easy and taste so great. I just rolled them out and then put them into the soup at the end of the recipe. Now I'll have to find other ways to use these.
Homemade Egg Noodles
2 c. flour
3 egg yolks
2 t. salt
1/4 - 1/2 c. water
Measure flour into bowl. Make a well in the center and add egg yolks, egg and salt. Mix thoroughly with hands. Add water, a little at a time. Add only enough water to form dough into a ball. Turn dough onto a well-floured surface. Knead until smooth and elastic. Return the dough to the bowl and cover with a clean towel. Let it rest about 10 minutes.
Divide dough into 4 equal parts. Roll each part into a paper-thin rectangle. Cut dough into strips. You can use your noodles immediately, if desired, by boiling them in salted water until tender. It doesn't take long. Or you can lay them out on a clean, lightly floured towel to dry and use later.
