Egg Noodles



  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • ½ egg shell of water


Mound flour on a board. Make hole in center, drop in egg and salt. Mix with knife and add water. Knead until dough is smooth. Flour the board and roll out very thin. Place sheet of dough on a cloth and let dry until not the least sticky and yet not too brittle to handle. Sprinkle the sheet well with flour, fold into a tight roll. Slice the roll in thin threads, toss the threads up lightly on board to dry. Boil in salted water until the noodles rise to the top. Strain and give them a cold water bath. This is a small recipe but egg noodles may be made in quantity and stored in a covered jar.

    For a larger quantity take

  • 5 eggs
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups flour
  • 2 egg shells of water

Be sure to dry the noodles thoroughly before storing them in a jar.

Of course you can buy store noodles if you do not want to bother with homemade, but do make them. They are delicious and so easy to make.
