So is anyone familiar with George Thorogood's song called "I Drink Alone" well I should call this, "I Soup Alone" cause my husband HATES pickles so it's just me & bowl of pickle soup. LOL.

Well, for me this is a delicious "love every spoonful" soup with thinly sliced potatoes, shredded pickles pickle juice & a few seasonings. It's a delicate brothy soup with a little tang to it. I may try 2 tbsps of lemon next time. I added a touch of heat and lots of celery flakes and dill. It reminded me of soups I've had when in Moscow, Russia.

Try it & see if anyone can guess it has pickles in it.

How to Make Dill Pickle Soup (Polish)

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large saucepan or soup pot with cover, combine stock, grated pickles, pickle juice & potatoes. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and cook covered, over low heat until potatoes start to get soft (about 1o-15 minutes).
  2. Combine flour and milk, add to broth, bring to a boil and remove from heat. I added the butter to the soup and tempered the egg into some separated broth and then back into the soup.

    (These are the main products I added to this recipe and also some heavy cream.)
  3. This is more of a brothy soup, so I ladled out some of the potatoes and dill pickle from the bottom and then added 2 more scoops of broth on top. This is what the soup looks like with just the first ladle.
  4. This is a bowl of dill pickle soup with garnishment and is ready to it.
  5. This recipe makes 2 quarts plus my 2 small bowls that I ate.
