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.
Making Your Easy Keto Egg Noodles At Home
