What are Amish Noodles Made of?
Amish noodles are made from eggs, flour, salt, and a few cups of water. You can make homemade egg noodles if you want or get a package of egg noodles from your local grocery store to save time. Amish noodles recipes are pretty easy to make at home.
To make homemade noodles, you simply combine all four ingredients to make a dough, roll it out, and slice it into small pieces to form pasta shapes of your desired width. From there, let them dry completely until you are ready to boil as you would any other store bought noodle, and enjoy! Amish noodles are great in a handful of side dishes and main meals like these Amish buttered noodles or even chicken noodle soup!
How to Make Amish Butter Noodles
- Chicken broth (you can swap for vegetable broth)
- Chicken bouillon cube (these are the ones we always use)
- Egg noodles
- Salt to taste
In a medium-sized pot add the tablespoons of butter, chicken broth, and bouillon cube, bringing to a low boil on medium-high heat. Mix to fully melt butter.
Add egg noodles into the pot with the melted butter mixture, and bring to a second boil.
Now here’s the secret cooking method that makes them so fluffy: Turn off the heat, cover the pot with a lid and allow it to stand for 30 minutes on the burner. Take the lid off and stir every 10 minutes.
Season with a little salt to taste (if needed), and serve!
If you don’t have a boullion cube, you can skip it. The chicken stock flavor won’t be as strong but they’re still delicious!
How long do you cook Amish noodles?
First bring your noodles to a boil, then let them set for 30 minutes, removing the lid to stir every ten minutes. If you check the noodles and they still aren’t cooked, turn the heat on for another 1-2 minutes until the noodles are cooked to your liking. The noodles should be tender, but not too chewy.
Can I use regular noodles?
Technically, yes, you can make this recipe with regular pasta. But it would no longer be an Amish buttered noodle dish. More like just buttered noodles. Amish noodles are an egg-based noodle you can buy from the store or make at home with eggs, a few cups water, flour, and salt.
