I love soup with homemade noodles! Here in Kansas it is cold outside and a bowl of chicken noodle soup is a sure way to warm up. You can make amazing soup with homemade noodles! It really isn’t that hard and uses ingredients you probably already have on hand. While the noodles are easy to make they do take time, so allow a couple of hours from start to finish. It is not all hands on though, the noodles have about a two hour drying time!
Homemade Noodle Recipe
1/4 cup milk
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
2 cups flour
Lightly beat eggs. Add in milk, salt and thyme. Stir in enough of the flour to make a stiff dough. Cover dough and let it rest 10 minutes.
Divide dough in half and get prepared for a workout! On a floured surface roll dough (half at a time) into a 12″ X 16″ rectangle. This takes some work and you might not actually get it that big. The point is the dough should be really thin! Once rolled, let dough stand 20 minutes.
Loosely roll up dough.
Cut dough into 1/4 inch slices. (The noodles will almost double in sized when cooked)
Cut into desired lengths. I usually cut into 1 to 2 inch lengths. Spread out noodles and allow to dry on a rack for 2 hours.
Add noodles to your favorite soup, allowing to cook about 10 minutes until soft and tender.
