Homemade Egg Noodles

Homemade egg yolk noodles are not so hard to do as it may seem. Lapsha (in russian cuisine) or klusky (in ukrainian cuisine) are as easy to do as simple egg and flour dough.

It is also a good way to use leftover yolks if you needed egg whites for some other dish.

Boiled homemade egg noodles can be served as a side dish or added to meat or chicken broth or soup.

Ingredients:

  • 1 egg (you will need only yolk)
  • 1/4 cup of water
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • About cup of flour

How to prepare, step-by-step:

  1. Prepare ingredients: separate egg yolk from egg white, you will not need egg white for this recipe:

So, take a part of dough, knead it several times (don’t forget to cover rest of dough with plastic wrap to prevent it from drying), arrange it in the middle of working area and start rolling using rolling pin from the center to the sides:

    Lovely noodles:) It takes time to make them right, but it worth every minute sacrificed into the process, for sure. For even more great experience, replace water by the same amount of dry white wine – it will make noodles more delicate and aroma-rich.

    I tried this recipe and they turned out so tender and yummy:0) This one is the best one yet I have come across. I am now going to try to find a good broth recipe to make chicken noodles. Mine isn’t to flavorful.
