We get a lot of questions regarding what you can do with duck eggs besides eating them in the standard egg fashion; scrambled, poached, over-easy, etc. The next biggest use is in baked goods. We previously posted a super rich brownie recipe and now we have one for making home made noodles.
We made these for the kids and didn't tell them they were made with duck eggs and they lost their minds over how amazing they were. You end up with a pasta that is higher in protein and nutrients over traditional pasta and the taste is over the top.
Make these the next time you're making a home made pasta and sauce and you won't regret it.
2 Wild Child Farms duck eggs (whole)
1 Wild Child Farms duck egg yolk
2 cups flour (00, Semolina, or All purpose)
1. Handmade Method: On a clean surface, measure out and pour the flour into a mound. Make a deep well in the center, using your hands. Put eggs, egg yolk, and salt into the well. Use a fork to slowly integrate the flour into the egg and then knead the dough for about 10 minutes. The dough ball should feel smooth.
2. Food Processor Method: Add flour and pulse a couple of times. Add remaining ingredients and pulse until the texture is course and crumbly. Remove the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead for 2 minutes until a smooth elastic ball forms.
3. Flatten and wrap in plastic wrap. Let rest at room temperature for at least 30 minutes and up to 2 hours.
4. Roll the dough onto a floured surface with a rolling pin and either cut with a knife or use a pasta machine. Cook in boiling water for 3 to 4 minutes.
