Homemade Noodles


If you are hoping I am going to share my mom’s noodle recipe, I am – Reames Frozen Homestyle Egg Noodles. Really, that was it. She rarely made her own noodles after finding them in the 1970′s. Yes, she did make them on rare occasion, but I am not sure what recipe she used.

I use my paternal grandmother’s recipe to make noodles. (I rarely can buy Reames where I currently live). Frankly, they are pretty easy to make and don’t take nearly as long to cook.

  2. I want to know how to cook the chicken with the noodles, what are the ingredients to put in along with the stock, how long do you cook it for? Extra.

    • Hi Julia, You’ll want to cook the chicken separately. I either cook the chicken while I let the noodles dry or I cook it well before I make the noodles (I often use leftover chicken). I usually cook the chicken in my pressure cooker with some stock….it is done in 15 minutes or less with the bone in. You can also poach it in water, roast or even grill it. For a short cut, I sometimes use rotisserie cooked chicken from the store instead of cooking my own chicken.

      I shred or chop the cooked chicken and place it in the stock while I bring the stock to a boil before adding the noodles. The only ingredients I usually add to the stock are salt and pepper…occasionally I will add some herbs like rosemary or sage.

      Once the stock is boiling, I add the noodles and cook until they reach the level of tenderness we like (using a fork to cut one or two and taste them). The amount of time will vary depending on the thickness and width of your noodles. I usually check after about 5 minutes to see how they are, but it usually takes closer to 10 minutes for them to get to where I like them.

      I hope this helps.

  3. Just made these last night. I was making a chicken soup and decided I wanted noodles but didn’t feel like running to the store so I did a search and came across your recipe. They are better than Reames! So quick, simple, and WAY cheaper than buying them. I’m going to make up another batch and stick them in freezer for next time. Thanks for sharing!

    • Glad you enjoyed them! I have never froze them before, but I was thinking about it as I need to cook for a large group in a couple months. I’d love to hear how they turn out for you.

  4. I made these noodles with leftover Thanksgiving turkey that I had frozen. It was so good! Thanks for sharing!
