It is very possible that homemade egg noodles are one of the most comforting and delicious recipes you can make from scratch. There is nothing like a homemade noodle, there really isn’t. Although the egg noodles do take some time effort, it is well worth it. The dough is much stickier than a bread dough so be aware of the mess. The recipe calls for 2.5 cups of flour but you can add in extra flour if needed so keep it near by if the dough is sticking to your hands or rolling pin. You can also make a large batch of egg noodles, let them dry completely and freeze them for convenience to use anytime.
My son had to point that this soup isn’t really from scratch because I didn’t make my own broth. <insert serious face here> We are making homemade noodles here… basically as homemade as a meal gets in this household. That is the great thing about cooking and playing with different ingredients though. You develop and learn techniques for certain things, like egg noodles, paired with the convenience of canned/premade ingredients you can make really fantastic dishes made very simply. The egg noodle recipe is a keeper for sure and everyone should know how to make some homemade pasta because there is really no comparison.
