Homemade noodles

homemade chicken noodle soup One of the things I remember loving most as a child was chicken noodle soup made by my grandmother – complete with homemade noodles. I was feeling brave and nostalgic, so I gave it a try. It was pretty easy, and they taste every bit as delicious as I remember!


  • 4 eggs
  • two cups white flour
  • one cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp salt

rolling out noodles

I mixed everything together, rolled it out, sliced it thin, and laid it out to dry. It needs to dry at least 20 minutes before cooking; ours dried for a couple hours.

We put the noodles in at the very end, right before the peas. Since they are fresh, they only need to boil for a couple of minutes before they are done.

Lily “helped” by turning her teething biscuit into a terrific mess in her booster seat (what was I thinking to give it to her without a bib??), while Emma and Johnny made some slightly less-edible food:

  1. Holy coincidence, batman! I literally made homemade noodles last night with the intent to blog about them today! Freaky!

    Anyway, those look delicious and I like the addition of the whole wheat, I’m always trying to adapt all-white recipes. Thanks for sharing!

  4. That is how my grandma makes her noodles and everyone loves them. One year for christmas my mom got all her girls (5 plus Daughter in law)a rotary noodle/herb cutter. It is kinda like a pizza wheel but with 5 or 6 blades. It makes cutting the noodles so much faster and easier for the kids to help! I totally recommend it. You can find them for $10-$15.

  5. @anonymous – chicken stock, chicken, carrots, potatoes, and frozen peas at the end. This recipe would work well, though – you can substitute chicken for turkey if you want, and leave out the flour if you use homemade noodles, because they have a little flour on them that works as a thickener:
