Egg Noodles-Yummy!

When I have extra eggs I make them into egg noodles. It is so easy & makes the best homemade chicken & noodle soup!

3 cups all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 eggs at room temperature

Mound the flour & make a well in the center.
Break your eggs into the center & add salt.
Mix flour & eggs.
When the mixture can't absorb any more flour-sprinkle a small amount of water over it & keep mixing.
Keep mixing unti it starts to stick together as a dough.
Knead lightly on a flour dusted board until smooth & elastic.
Divide into 4 balls.
Roll out on a four dusted board to 1/8 inch thickness.
Lay out on a flour sack towel to dry.
Cover with a 2nd towel.
Let dry until no longer tacky.
Cut into desired size-I use a paring knife-you can use a noodle cutter if they are dry enough.
Let dry 1-3 hours after cutting.
I freeze mine in big batches for homemade noodle soup!

It makes my mouth water just thinking about it!
Try making some noodles-you'll never go back to store bought!
