How To Serve Vintage Homemade Noodles
These noodles are best served hot or at least warm. They can be eaten as a snack or with some bacon, eggs, and cheese for breakfast. You can also have it with maple syrup and fresh fruit if you so choose to, or get creative and mix things up; either way, these noodles will taste amazing!

This recipe is excellent if you’re home alone and want something quick and tasty to eat. If you are looking to make this for your family, increase the recipe by the number of people you’re making it for, and you’ll be okay.
Bowls– I used a medium bowl to combine the ingredients.
Pot– Use a medium saucepan or pot to boil the noodles
Pan– You’ll need a skillet or frying pan to fry up the noodles.
Knife– You can use a sharp knife or pizza cutter to slice the dough into strips.
Rolling Pin– Use this to roll the dough flat.
Colander– This will help strain the hot water of the noodles.
All-Purpose Flour– For this recipe, I used 1 cup of Bob’s Red Mills plus extra flour to roll out the dough. It’s okay to use the brand that’s available to you.
Eggs– I used four egg yolks and two egg whites in the recipe. Don’t worry about wasting the two remaining egg whites; you can store them in the freezer for up to 3 months.
All-Purpose Flour– If you don’t have any AP flour or if you have a gluten allergy and want to avoid it, you can go with gluten-free flour as a substitute in the recipe. Just use the equivalent of what the recipe requires.
All The Ingredients
- Flour– Combined with the two egg whites and four egg yolks to make the dough for the egg noodles.
- Eggs Whites– Gives moisture and texture to the dough.
- Eggs Yolks– Contributes to the yellow-colored tint of the noodles.
How To Make Vintage Homemade Noodles
- In a bowl, combine the eggs and flour into a dough.
- Use a rolling pin to flatten the dough on a well-floured surface.
- Cut and separate the noddles using a sharp knife.
- In a saucepan, boil the noodles for 20 minutes in salted water.
- Using a colander, strain off the hot water from the noodles and rinse with cold water.
- Fry the noodles in a skillet with hot butter until golden in color, then serve.
Roll Out Dough
Once I had combined the ingredients to make the dough, I transferred it to a generously floured surface to roll it flat (flour the rolling pin). Why flour the surface and rolling pin? The flour prevents the tacky dough from sticking to everything while rolling it.
Combining The Ingredients
To make the noodle dough, I beat all the ingredients together in a bowl until they came together. There is, however, another way to combine the ingredient that doesn’t include beating. Pour the flour into a bowl and make a well in the center; pour the eggs into the dry mixture and stir to combine.
How To Store Vintage Homemade Noodles
I highly recommend eating these noodles fresh and hot, but if you need to store them, place them in an airtight container and refrigerate them for up to 3 days. To keep for longer, freeze them in a freezer-safe bag. The noodles will last for about a month.
Buttery and delicious, these noodles will make your taste buds happy! These noodles are so versatile that you can pair them with foods such as eggs, bacon, sausages, cheese, or even maple syrup and fruits. Once you’ve tasted these buttery noodles, you’ll be hooked for life.
