  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 1/2 egg shells Water
  • 2 dashes Salt
  • 1/2-3/4 cup Flour


Step 1
Beat eggs
In medium bowl, beat eggs with water and salt.
Step 2
Add flour
Add 1/2 cup of flour and mix. You can add more flour if you want it to be thicker. I like mine a little thinner so it will be lighter noodles.
Step 3
Scrape noodles into soup
Using a fork, scrape the noodle batter into your prepared soup. You can make them thin or thick, up to you. I usually wind up with a mixture of sizes. Usually thicker as I get impatient. Cook for 1 more minute to make sure the noodles are completely cooked. Serve

My Grandmother (and my Mom) made amazing homemade egg noodles (see recipe for Grandma’s Homemade Egg Noodles). My sisters and I have all made them as well, but they are time consuming and messy. Sometimes it feels good to have homemade noodles without all the fuss… and that’s where these noodles come in.

My mom, Cherri, made these Lazy Noodles whenever we had leftover soup or when she was just cooking a small batch of soup for her and my Dad. When I met my husband, one of the Chinese soup recipes his mother made was almost the exact same noodles except they added green onions to them (I highly recommend).

This recipe is the first that comes to mind as it has probably been around for as long as egg noodles have graced our tables. You will likely find this in recipe in cultures around the world, made by moms and grandmas trying to put a healthy and hearty meal on the table.
