German Potato Soup

Friday, October 23, 2020

Hello Sparkfamily, It's soup time! Take a peek!


3 slices bacon
3 cups diced peeled potatoes
1 small onion, chopped fine
2 stalks celery, chopped fine (leaves OK)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
rivals (mixture follows)
2 cups milk
3 tablespoons butter
2 cups egg noodles, or make your own rivals (below)


Chop bacon fine and fry in a skillet until crisp and brown. Put the cooked bacon in a large saucepan and add potatoes, onion, celery, salt, and pepper. Cover with water and cook until vegetables are tender, about 25 minutes. Put the noodles (or rivals) into gently boiling soup, stirring constantly so they stay separate. Add milk and butter and cook 10 to 15 minutes more, or until noodles (or rivals) are done.

Rivals (Optional)


1 cup all-purpose flour
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 teaspoon salt


+ Rivals are little homemade egg noodles. They are good in beef and chicken stew, as well as in vegetable soups.

Pour flour on a flat surface such as a cutting board. Make a well in the center, then pour in the egg and salt. Using your hands and a knife, work these 3 ingredients together into a noodle-type pastry. Knead once or twice, then chop it into small pieces. Enjoy!

Have a healthy day! Hugs, Rose:)
