ready in:

1-2 hrs

19 reviews


3 eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups all-purpose flour, or as needed
beef or chicken stock


Beat the eggs and salt in a large bowl until frothy. Add the flour while stirring, adding more (or less) flour as needed until it is a dough.

Knead the dough in the bowl until it is smooth (again, add additional flour if needed, or a little water if it's too thick).

Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and roll it flat with a rolling pin until thin.

Let the dough dry for 45 minutes then carefully turn it over and let dry another 30 minutes.

While the dough is drying, bring the beef or chicken stock to a rolling boil.

After the dough has dried, cut it into noodles or other shapes with a sharp knife.

Drop the egg noodles into the boiling stock then reduce the heat to a low boil and cook for 20 minutes.

    Maybe a dumb question, but I've never made Amish Noodles. Can you cook in salted water, then add to soup?

    • CDKitchen Staff Reply:

      You could. Or just cook them right in the soup.

    This is so close to my grandma’s famous recipe. Funny I always thought she was the inventor of it. LOL I also can’t believe other eat this over mash potatoes too. I thought that was a strictly “Idaho” thing. This really is the best way to make homemade noodle soup. My mom carried on my grandma’s recipe and now I will teach my girls. Thanks for posting. I just cringe at the thought of prepackaged egg noodles. Yuck!

    I have made these noodles for years and yes you can freeze them. Just lay the cut noodles on a cookie sheet and freeze. After put them in freezer bags or a container. When cooking just drop frozen noodles into simmering broth.

    This is the best recipe I have tried! Reminds me of when I was a little girl and helped my Nana.

    Could these noodles be frozen before they are cooked? These look like my grandpa used to make for his homemade chicken noodle soup.

      It hasn't been tested with this specific recipe but usually you can freeze fresh pasta with good results.

    I have made these several times. They are the closest in taste to those my Granny made. They stir warm memories of childhood.😊

    Would like to try this recipe, but I do not see when it says to add the salt.

    • CDKitchen Staff Reply:

      It's listed in the first sentence of the instructions.

    Who ever said this takes 10 minutes needs to school me! I’m sure I read that on a different pin.The noodles were delicious! 5 stars! Great recipe!

    • CDKitchen Staff Reply:

      Not sure where you read 10 minutes. This recipe definitely takes longer than that as you can see from the directions. Glad you enjoyed it!

    Love homemade noodles. My daughter makes them and I’m teaching my granddaughter to make them

  11. Judmil November 21, 2018

    This is the exact recipe of my grandma, she wasn’t Amish but I can tell by the dough before cooking they will be wonderful! Thanks for sharing

    Been making these noodles for over forty years everyone looks forward to them but with my arthritis I now use a noodle roller and cutter, makes it easier and faster to roll them out

    I have been making these noodles since I was 15 and I am now 70! I make them every year for 80 people at Thanksgiving. I am thinking that it is time to pass the rolling pin down to my daughter 🙂.

    I add a little melted butter, baking powder and powdered milk. Just my thing.

    If you range fed eggs you will not have to add any yellow coloring, they are naturally deep yellow.

  17. Rose REVIEW:

    I add a couple of drops of yellow food color to the eggs before I beat them. More consistent color. Yummy!!

  18. Guest Foodie July 12, 2017

    I talked to a Amish ladies she said drop a drop or 2 of yellow food coloring in your dough mix and then drop a drop or 2 drops in the broth to give a little yellow color to it. Be careful don't need much.

    My grandma made them but after rolling them out thin she would roll the dough up lengthwise and then cut them. Then she would shake them apart and leave out to dry.....we would run by and grab a raw noodle and eat it!!! Aww the memories. I'm 60 now!! Lol

    I have been making these noodles going on 32 years my family loves them always make them 4 the holidays and they r gone in a flash so give them a try and u will b hooked 4 life sea salt and cracked pepper are so yummy on these noodles <3

  23. Gwenevere1946 May 19, 2013

    Should have added: The sheets of dough were then rolled like a jelly roll and cut into strips as thin or as wide as desired.

  24. boy May 16, 2013

    When we would go to my grandmother's house in Indiana she would have these for one or more of our dinners. And I remember as a kid my mom having this dough drying on the kitchen counter. And now I'm making them. Simple and delicious.
