Can You Eat Egg Noodles on Keto

The only time I find myself longing for something pasta-like is when I’m making a dish that needs something to sop up the sauce. You do have a couple of different pasta options when you need a pasta fix. In fact, I wrote an entire blog post about allllll the different noodle options for a low carb and keto diet. Included in that post are these keto egg noodles. And no, not the hard spiral shaped egg noodles that come in a plastic bag at the grocery store. These are literally eggs that are baked flat and cut into noodle shapes. Weird, right? I know! But, it WORKS! Oddly enough, this little egg concoction grips onto pasta sauce (or any sauce) really well and makes a great replacement for the flour version.

What Do These Keto Egg Noodles Taste Like?

Now, I know what you’re thinking…”won’t they just taste like eggs?” Sort-of, but not really.

If you eat these egg noodles by themselves they’re definitely going to taste eggy because well, they’re eggs! But when you drown them in nice rich sauce, you just get the chewy bite and belly filler that is typical of flour based noodles.

Can egg substitute (egg beaters) be used in the keto egg noodle recipe ?

Egg beaters have not been tested in this recipe but I wouldn't recommend them anyway as they are a highly processed and unnatural product. Real fresh eggs are much better for you.

I'm wondering, can you put this mixture into a plastic bag, poke holes, and pipe into boiling water?

Just tried this recipe, I followed it exactly and then made a quick “sauce” of diced fresh tomato sautéed in butter, added some seasonings. Very tasty. I did find the noodles stuck to the paper, had to slide my knife under to separate. And I think next time, yes there will be a next time! I will add a bit more xanthan gum to see it they are bit firmer. And maybe spray the parchment with oil spray. Thanks for this!

some sources say that using unflavoured gelatin or egg whites may be a good substitute for xanthan gum. do you recommend any of them? Its a bit harder for me to get the xanthan gum

In this recipe, you could try unflavored gelatin but you'd need to significantly increase the amount. Since I have not tested with gelatin, I can't say exactly how much. I would not use egg whites as they would create more air/lift, not bind everything together to provide a 'bite".

I made these tonight for a spaetzle. They worked great. Substitutions I made: some one ate my cream cheese, so I used goat cheese. I used konjac powder for the gum. I use konjac anytime I need a gum in a recipe.

I added nutmeg because it's spaetzle.

The noodles were a tiny bit too soft, but I suspect that was the goat cheese. I'll add a bit more konjac powder if I use goat cheese again.

These hold together well if you simmer them in sauce or broth, and they take on the flavor, too.
