Of course anything can be made from scratch in your home, but why not leave it to the pros? Most markets around here sell them, but there’s a few that are known for them.

Dutch Country Market specializes in many delicious items, but Katie’s Homemade Amish Noodles are something that should be in every shopping basket. Stop by in the morning to watch the family making the noodles from scratch until early afternoon. They have it figured out to a science.

With endless possibilities to create with Amish noodles, where should you start? Using them as a side is extremely popular, plus you can even add chicken or beef to make a meal out of it. I can’t even count the number of times I’ve had noodles as a side at Amish dining facilities, and I’m not complaining. I could never replicate the ones made by experienced professionals, but anything is worth a shot.
