Since I keep chickens, what a great use for those nutritional, farm-fresh eggs. I love egg noodles! And I love using my KitchenAid stand mixer to make them. How much easier we have it today! You can make fresh egg noodles by hand; it's just so much easier this way. The pasta roller attachment rolls out the dough as thick or thin as you want it. Then the noodle cutter attachment cuts them quickly.
I added some cut-up cooked chicken and the noodles and heated through.
Perfectly delicious for a wintry day.
Egg Noodle Recipe
4 large eggs
1 tablespoon water
3 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
Knead for 2 minutes in a stand mixer with a dough hook. Then knead for 2 minutes by hand. The dough should feel like leather, not crumbly and not sticky. Divide into four parts. Put in a plastic baggie and let rest for 20 minutes. (It's really important to let it rest for 20 minutes. That makes a big difference in how the dough is to handle.) Roll out dough thin and cut into strips for noodles.
Makes 1 pound of noodles.
Tips: A large egg typically equals 1/4 cup. Since eggs vary in size, I usually measure them into a measuring cup, using 1 cup of eggs for this recipe. Letting the dough rest in a baggie for at least 20 minutes makes the dough much easier to handle.
I really love the pasta roller/noodle cutter attachment. I tease with my husband and say these are expensive noodles, because the attachment is expensive, but they are sooooo much better than store bought. Since I keep chickens, all the more so because of the farm fresh,nutritional eggs! This attachment set actually comes with three attachments: the roller, the noodle cutter, and a spaghetti noodle cutter. You can use the flat strips to make lasagne or cut them into ravioli. For anyone who likes pasta, you can't beat this, and it is worth it to me!
