How to Make Amish Egg Noodles

Making these noodles couldn’t get any easier! 

1. Boil the broth. In a large pot, bring the chicken broth, 2 tablespoons butter, bouillon cube, and salt to a full rolling boil over high heat.

2. Cook the noodles. Add the egg noodles and return to a boil. Cook uncovered for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.|

3. Let the noodles sit. Turn off the heat and cover the pot. Let the noodles sit for 20-25 minutes until tender and most of the broth has been absorbed. Stir once or twice during the first 10 minutes to prevent sticking.

4. Add the butter. Uncover and stir in the remaining 4 tablespoons of butter until melted. The sauce should be glossy and coat the noodles. If needed, turn the heat back on for a minute to help melt the butter.

5. Season the noodles. Stir in the fresh parsley and season generously with freshly ground black pepper. Taste and add more salt if desired.

6. Serve hot. Serve the buttered noodles immediately while hot. Enjoy!

Tips For the Best Amish Egg Noodles

Follow these tips for the very best noodles.

  • Give ‘em an upgrade. Take your noodles to the next level by browning some of the butter first for more flavor.
  • Be generous! Don’t be shy with the salt and freshly ground black pepper. They bring out the best in the buttered noodles.
  • Give ‘em some garlic. For an extra layer of flavor, add a touch of garlic powder to the broth. 
  • Try fun variations. Add your favorite herbs, such as thyme or rosemary, for a different flavor profile. You can also top the noodles with grated Parmesan cheese for a tangy, salty kick.

How to Store

Here’s how to keep leftover noodles fresh:

To Store: Place leftover noodles in an air-tight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. If the noodles seem dry when reheating, add a splash of chicken broth or water.

To Freeze: Allow the noodles to cool completely. Place in a freezer-safe, air-tight container or freezer bag and freeze for up to 3 months. Before you reheat, thaw the noodles in the refrigerator overnight.

To Reheat: Reheat in the microwave at 1-minute intervals until heated through. Or, place the noodles in a saucepan with a small amount of water or chicken broth. Reheat on the stovetop over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
