This homestyle egg noodle recipe is incredibly easy to make by hand in just 15 minutes with 4 basic ingredients.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 large egg + 1 large egg yolk
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup water


  1. Make the dough. Whisk together flour and salt in a large mixing bowl. Add egg, egg yolk and 1/4 cup water and stir until a dough ball starts to form. Add 2 to 4 tablespoons more water as needed until the dough is slightly sticky and holds together well.
  2. Knead. Transfer the dough to a lightly-floured work surface and sprinkle with flour. Knead with your hands for 1-2 minutes or until the dough is evenly combined and no longer sticky and forms a relatively smooth and soft ball. (The dough will not be 100% smooth, which is okay.)
  3. Roll and cut. Generously flour the work surface and the top of the dough ball once more. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough out evenly to your desired thickness. (I recommend between ¼” to ⅛” thick.) Lightly dust the top of the dough with flour, then sse a pizza slicer to slice the dough into your desired size of noodles. (I recommend roughly 3” x ½” strips.) Gently toss the noodles to combine, which will help prevent them from sticking together while cooking.
  4. Cook. If you are using the noodles immediately, cook them in boiling water or broth for 2 to 3 minutes, depending on their thickness, until they are tender. Drain (or skip the step, if cooking the noodles directly in a soup or sauce) and enjoy!
