A, J.A.P.friend, E-mailed me after looking at my 50 POLISH RECIPE, cookbook and asked me if I had a recipe for White Polish Borscht Soup she had in Chicago.
I went to my Polish file and there it was.A wonderful recipe from my good Polish neighbor who moved to Chicago ten years ago.
I wish I had remembered it to put in my J.A.P. Cookbook yesterday!
So seeing I had all the ingredients at home....I made it this morning, and here is the results with pictures.
It is only 7:30 here..so this will be my breakfast!...LOL
This is especially for Jo Ellen, with hugs, Nancy 5/12/12

In a medium size bowl, combine 1 egg with the 1 cup of milk.
Gradually whisk in the flour and stir till smooth.

Slowly drizzle milk,egg and flour mixture into the simmering soup, whisking continuously until all has been added.

Hi Nancy, is that smoked Polish sausage or fresh in the soup? Being Polish myself, I use both.

I have made something similar and add the potatoes to the water with the sausage to cook.

I guess you could use either...sausage that is..
I did not use the smoked.
The potatoes hold together better, if you add at the end.
I do not like them mushy !!!!!

Did you check out my Cook book... 50 Polish Recipes..yet ??
